Law & Order, Part II

My days as a potential juror have come to a close. In the end, I was dismissed and cannot be called up again for six years. The whole experience was interesting but after two days of sitting in a courtroom, I think I’ve gotten my Law and Order fix. (The New York County Courthouse where I was will look familiar to fans of the show— countless scenes were filmed on its steps.)

On my last day, I stopped to take in the jewel of the building—a grand rotunda with stained glass windows, Tiffany chandeliers, and a WPA sponsored mural, “Law Through the Ages.” It was striking to look at. I just wish I had had more than my phone on hand to capture its beauty.
