Staten Island Courthouse
Thursday, June 14, 2018
26 Central Avenue
Completed in 2015, the Staten Island Courthouse designed by Ennead Architects houses the New York State Supreme Civil and Criminal Courts, lower Criminal Court, and related agencies. The building–with fourteen courtrooms, judges’ chambers, administrative offices, and a law library–sits on a hill overlooking New York harbor in St. George, a short walk from the ferry terminal, and projects a 21st-century vision of the justice system. Four cooper-clad “towers of justice” create a beacon on the skyline, and extensive use of transparency allows for sweeping views of the water while symbolizing fairness, openness, and democracy of law. Tour the building with the project’s design team-Susan T. Rodriguez, design partner, and Christopher Halloran, project architect, Ennead Architects.
Admission is free, but advance reservations are required.
Registration begins May 24 at 8 am.
