Alcatraz Island (C/N)

482.pngLocated in the San Francisco bay, the small island (often referred to as “The Rock”) was developed with facilities, including a lighthouse, a military prison plus fortification, and a federal prison, popularly known as Alcatraz, which remained open from 1933 until 1963. In 1972, the island became a national recreation area, and recieved designation as a National Historic Landmark in 1986.

Shortly before landing on Isla Nublar, Dr. Ian Malcom said that the appearance of the island gave it a look similar to Alcatraz.
