Nichols Town Court Lawyer, The Beauty of Old Buildings

As an upstate defense lawyer who travels from courthouse to courthouse, covering about 7 counties in the summer, and 6 in the winter (I leave out Yates come winter due to snow and lack of cell service), I feel lucky to see incredible little towns, grand vistas, and old buildings.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting Nichols Town Court. I have represented many speeding cases and other VTLs (vehicle traffic violations) going through Nichols (actually highway 17/86) between Elmira and Binghamton over the years. I really took my time to look at the magnificent Cady library, and the carriage house (this is where the Court is located), right to the side and back of the library. They re-did the inside of the carriage house and made great use of the space. The library was a turn of the century mansion, unfortunately it is only open in the afternoon after 2:00pm.

Located right off I-17/86 and Route 282, it is about 10 minutes west of the Owego County Courthouse.
