The court house , designed by Cass Gilbert, the architect who designed the United States Supreme Court, has been the site of a number of other famous trials including Jackie O, Paul Castellano, Pizza Connection, and Alger Hiss.  The building, which opened in 1936, was renamed the Thurgood Marshall Court House  in honor of the late Supreme Court justice.
It  recently reopened after being closed for almost 6 years due to a major renovation.
