The Midtown Community Court was the nation’s first community court. In its 25-year history, this unique example of problem-solving justice has rethought responses to low-level crime, contributing to New York City’s dramatic drop in both crime and use of jail. This video highlights the court’s history, its impact on the justice landscape both locally and nationally, and its unique community partnerships, including its emphasis on using arts programming as an alternative to incarceration. Featured speakers include Presiding Judge Charlotte Davidson, the court’s founding director John Feinblatt, and U.S. Senator Cory Booker.
