Great architecture and well maintained building. We went to see the court proceedings and the court building. Very attractive building. Lots and lots of security and all in a regular and convenient manner. Need to walk from the nearest railway station and the plae is easy to locate. Can see the proceedings with the permission.

As we were in the area we decided to pop by the Criminal Court. I am so glad I was popping by as a tourist and not someone "required" to attend, this is a daunting building! It has the same presence as some of the old school buildings in Rome but instead in the city that never sleeps. Always seen... More

You see this building all the time on various television shows and movies, but seeing the architecture with your own eyes is very impressive. The building, the columns, stairs, are all massive. The surrounding area is really nice to walk around in as well.

We decided to visit the criminal court to show our teen son what the criminal court system was all about. This building and others on the block are the often seen setting for the TV show Law and Order. Since this is a public building you are allowed into the various court rooms when court is in session. On our... More

I felt the sheer size and age of the building and the buildings in the area beautiful. The stone work done by the craftsmen at the time it was built was brilliantly done

We have an interest in crminal law, so decided to visit the courts. You see the outside of the buildings on numerous TV programmes. We went inside, as they are public buildings. We even sat in on a murder trial, which was very interesting.

This where I have to go to deal with jury duty.Nuff said.It's quite a bore inside as well. Not worthwhile unless you have to come here and you don't.

There are several state court buildings in this area of New York City. This one in the photos is NOT the criminal court, it is a civil court. The address is also incorrect -- this is 60 Centre Street. 100 Centre Street, which sort of looks like a post-modern Mayan pyramid and is, indeed, a criminal court, is a little... More
