Day 538

Harlem Court House

June 20th, 2013

This grand Romanesque Revival structure (with "romantic Victorian Gothic overtones") opened in 1893 and, after falling out of use for some decades, is now home to the Harlem Community Justice Center. You can barely see the building in this photo, obscured as it is by the trees lining fittingly named Sylvan Place (a block-long remnant of a 17th-century roadway — more info halfway down this page), but you can get a better look on the pages linked above, the first of which also features an interior shot of the vaulted third-floor courtroom.
