Into the Judicial Section (Downtown Stroll pt. 2)

Continuing down Centre St you enter the Judicial area of NYC. This area has been in the news a lot lately due to the Occupy Wall St movement and their occupation of Foley Square (after being cleared out of Zuccotti Park). The architecture here is mostly stone (marble, etc) and creates a very different atmosphere from the steel towers of midtown and the brownstones of the Village. Though this is being slowly invaded and converted in some areas.

NYS Courthouse.

That’s a lot of pillars and stairs for justice.

Waiting for her chance in court…might be humming “I’m just a Bill” to pass the time.

He presides over the Justice of the city…and it’s NOT Batman.

The sun sets on Foley Square.

While continuing down, there is an alley to the left that leads to more courthouses, offices, Police Plaza,  and the Judicial Church.

An arch leads from the Judicial area back into typical Downtown NYC.

A rest amongst the pillars.

The man waits and thinks as the subways come and go below.

Continuing on Centre St. you reach City Hall Park where Centre St. ends.

Just north of City Hall…very ornate.

The fountain in City Hall Park.

Interesting lamppost with the fountain in the background.

Next week we will round out this series with an example of the infiltration of modern architecture into the area.
