New York's Legal Landmarks
Tuesday, March 3, 6:30-8 PM
Martin E. Segal Theater
Please join us for a tour of New York through the eyes of a history-loving lawyer. Robert Pigott's new book takes us on an inside tour of Gotham's great courthouses, the sites of famous trials in film and real life, the locations of some of the most important moments in constitutional history, the law firms where some of the best Americans practitioners worked, and the homes, schools, and final resting places of the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. Whether you want to stroll down the Lower East Side's Attorny Street or re-open the cold case of Judge Crater's disappearance, Pigott is the guide for you.
