Cornerspotted: The Red Hook Community Justice Center

New, 1 comment

Even though this Cornerspotter building has barely changed in its 100 years of existence, it took a little longer for the location to be identified, but Curbed commenter dasracht got it right. The building was originally the Parochial School of the Visitation, which went along with the Church of the Visitation. These institutions led to the renaming of the block-long street from Tremont Street to Visitation Place in the first decade of the 20th century. Since June 2000, the school building has been used for the Red Hook Community Justice Center, the nation's first multi-jurisdictional community court.
