This was a huge news story not only in New York City, but the country. Both Aggie Kenny and Richard Tomlinson covered the story.
Posted are some never before published illustrations from the arraignment and subsequent hearing of Berkowitz. There are many more included in the upcoming book, the Illustrated Courtroom : 50 Years of Court Art.
