Event description

Description

The Midtown Community Court, established by the Center for Court Innovation in 1993, was one of the country's first problem-solving courts, providing alternatives to fines and jail as a response to low-level crime. Located in a late 19th-century landmarked building that was originally constructed as the Seventh District Police Court and Prison (and now shared with a non-profit theater company), the Midtown Community Court seeks sentences that are restorative to the victim, defendant, and community. An onsite social services clinic, and fatherhood and workforce developmet programs, are open to everyone.

Join OHNY for a tour of the building and give an overview of the court's work. The tour will also include time to observe court in session.

Admission is free, but advance reservations are required.

This program is organized as part of Spaces of Justice, a yearlong series organized by Open House New York to explore the architecture and infrastructure of New York’s justice system. Major support has been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts. Free admission is made possible by a grant from the Reba Judith Sandler Foundation.
