A view of the Harlem Court:House/Jail Complex on 121st Street. By Gerald Schultz. Note white stonework borders double doors like the kind that opened to Correction and Police vehicles -- first horse drawn, later motorized -- bringing in or moving out prisoners.
The ex-jail and the former living quarters are not part of the restoration program. Those unrestored parts of the building are outside the mandate of those agencies.
However, to their and their staffs' credit, they demonstrate commendable civic interest in providing what information and assistance they can to researchers studying the history of the ex-jail and former living quarters.
