The New York City Jail despite the name is not a jail. The New York City Jail is just a holding pen for people who have been arrested in the New York limits.

Unfortunately, with the holding pen in the New York City Jail is quite small. So, offenders will only be in this small holding pen for hours, if that. Most of the offenders that have been arrested in the New York limits will be brought directly to the New York County Detention Center and skip going down to the New York City Jail all together.

Keep in mind that the New York Police Department will also manage this smallholding pen as well.
