New York State’s largest courthouse adds future-ready audio, video, and control capabilities to each of its 84 courtrooms

The newly-erected courthouse at 320 Jay Street in Brooklyn, NY, occupies 25 floors of a new 32-story, 1.1 million-square-foot office tower. The $670 million building’s modern architecture designed by Perkins Eastman Architects belies the fact that it houses the state’s largest number of courtrooms in a single facility. A total of 84 courtrooms are used for the New York State Supreme Court (5) and the Kings County Family Court (34).

The Jay Street Courthouse is a new experience for each court, considering the Supreme Court staffers relocated there from two separate sites, and the Family Court also brought along a number of victims’ services and children’s agencies that now have office space throughout the building. None of the previous facilities had any permanent AV, and in most cases, AV capabilities didn’t extend beyond a TV/VCR car.
