Midtown Community Court

This tour is now sold out, but you can sign up for the waitlist to be notified if spots become available here.

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 development programs, are open to everyone.

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

Admission is free for all Spaces of Justice tours, but space is very limited and reservations are required. Reservations for these tours will begin on October 18 at 8am. Click the “Get Tickets” link above to make a reservation.

Spaces of Justice is a year-long series of tours, panel discussions, and other public programs that allow the public to examine firsthand the spaces with primary responsibility for producing safety and rendering justice in New York City. Major support has been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts and a grant from the Reba Judith Sandler Foundation.
