Accessing Manhattan South TVB
Manhattan South is easily reachable by multiple major MTA subway lines; the closest stations are the Bowling Green stop on the 4/5 trains and the Rector Street stop on the 1 train. A private parking lot is located about a block away, adjacent to the former location at 2 Washington Street. This lot is convenient for a visit to Manhattan South, but you can expect to pay Downtown Manhattan prices to park.
Important Details About Manhattan South TVB
This Court is the busiest in the system regarding total cases heard yearly. It is also considered one of the better ones in the system for motorists, especially those represented by counsel. Manhattan South covers some of the busiest and most ticketed streets in America — in Manhattan, south of 59th Street. These streets include tourist hubs such as Times Square, Wall Street, Union Square, Bowling Green, and the South Street Seaport, to name just a few. These streets are some of the densest in the world, filled with for-hire drivers (yellow taxis, livery cars, Uber and Lyft drivers, to name a few), who are among the most ticketed drivers in the city.
