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.
While continuing down, there is an alley to the left that leads to more courthouses, offices, Police Plaza, and the Judicial Church.
Continuing on Centre St. you reach City Hall Park where Centre St. ends.
Next week we will round out this series with an example of the infiltration of modern architecture into the area.
