Moses Randolph is sworn in to a new role by the mayor in the rotunda of the New York County Supreme Court in Lower Manhattan. In a following scene, you understand how much sway Randolph has when he expresses his displeasure at the mayor. We are also introduced to the Jane Jacobs-inspired character, Gabby Horowitz, in this scene, who is sitting in the audience and predicts Randolph’s ire.

The New York County Supreme Court’s rotunda is easily the most impressive part of the building with beautiful WPA murals entitled “The History of the Law” designed by Italian artist Attilio Pusterla and painted by him and a team of artists. This courthouse is often filmed at, whether on the steps on inside the rotunda, seen recently in Billions.
