- The Courthouse was designed by Cass Gilbert in 1933. He also designed the U.S. Customs House (which doubled for the museum in the second movie). After Gilbert's death in 1934, construction was supervised by his son Cass Gilbert Jr. until its completion in 1936.
- The courthouse was originally known as the Foley Square Courthouse. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (as U.S. Courthouse) on September 2, 1987. It was renamed after Thurgood Marshall on August 20, 2001, and rededicated April 15, 2003. Marshall worked at the courthouse from 1961 to 1965 as a judge of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals before later being elevated to the Supreme Court of the United States.
