It’s All Legal on the Upper West Side
January 15, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm
Lawyer and author Robert Pigott takes us on a “hidden in plain sight” virtual tour of incredible people, places and it-happened-here events in legal history on the streets of the UWS and the City generally, drawn from his book, New York’s Legal Landmarks. We’ll find courthouses past and present that were sites of sensational trials (both actual and in film), locations that figured in the nation’s constitutional history, and local ties to (guess how many) UWS Supreme Court Justices. Anyone interested in local history, lore, architecture and trivia will love this toboggan ride through all the legal (and not so legal) landmarks of the UWS!
