This looks very much like neoclassicism instead of art deco.

This also has more Romanesque detailing rather than art deco.

The name of the Penitentiay is Oso Blanco, wich in Spanish means White Bear.
It is basicaly Puertorico's alcatraz, adding up all of the spooky stories that people who where prisioners there or who worked there can tell you.
