What spaces in New York City most affect the safety of its residents and the justice they experience? As crime in New York falls to its lowest point in modern history, what should a 21
st-century justice system look like, and what kinds of architecture and infrastructure do we need to support it?

Open House New York announces the launch of Spaces of Justice, a yearlong series of tours, panel discussions, and other public programs that will allow the public to examine firsthand the spaces with primary responsibility for producing safety and rendering justice in New York City. The series will provide a platform for those who know the system from the inside—including judges, police and corrections officers, public health practitioners, housing advocates, activists, and people with lived experience of arrest and incarceration—to share their perspectives, and help broaden the public debate about what a twenty-first century justice system in New York looks like.
