In the first week of 1936 the Court took up residence in its new classic-revival temple on Capitol Hill. "It is a magnificent structure," said a New Yorker writer, "with fine big windows to throw the New Deal out of."

Press, 1999), ch. 11  (Kennedy’s endnote says: "New Yorker quoted in Irving Bernstein, Turbulent Years: A History of the American Worker, 1933-1941 (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1970), p. 639.")
