This prison is located on an island in East River. Here, Strauss-Kahn will remain at least until Friday, when its next scheduled appearance before the justice.

The Frenchman will stay at a single cell of about 3.5 meters by four meters, according to a spokesman has said the prison authorities to CNN. So far was in a police detention center in Harlem. The judge on Monday rejected his request for bail. French, 62, who allegedly sexually assaulted an employee of the service room Sofitel Hotel located in Times Square, will have no contact with other prisoners, because it is considered a celebrity, said prison spokesman.
