Not much one can say here. If you received a happy little letter in the mail asking you to show up for jury duty, well, this may be the spot.
I have served jury duty about 4 times in my life, and this was my first time in Queens. The place was pretty much like any other, a big room with lots of seats. The staff wasn’t overly mean, but they certainly weren’t very friendly first thing in the morning. I trust that they tire of dealing with soooo many people day in and day out.
It’s jury duty, what can I say. This space as far as I know is the screening room. When I was selected for a case I was taken to the criminal court building a few steps away. On the escorted walk over you will see a “Train Car” sitting on the side of the building. I did not go in or really check out this portion. But I will, and when I do you will know about it.
Also, I see mentions of wifi and so on, however I was told to put my phone away when I was browsing the web. I explained I wasn’t talking to anyone just reading news groups, and they explained they couldn’t confirm I wasn’t texting, so I had to put away my phone. Perhaps they allow laptops then? Iphone was a no no, unless the policy has changed in the past few months.
