"Creation of judiciary" sounds like where laws are made, so some kind of court house with judge and jury, the courtyard in the middle may be where executions by hanging are performed, the gallows. But that is just a guess.

So AC3 may feature the great fire of 1835, and Connor may have something to do with it? (scratch that, the great fire was a long time after the war)

We already know AC3 will feature the great fire of 1835...When some of the first details of the cities were released it was confirmed there will be a New York before, during and after the fire.

No of 1835, of 1776. There were two.

Yes, 1835 is far too late, 1776 fits the time frame as reguarding the war.

I found this old 18 century map - New York City.

Royal Exchange is №25 on this map. Corner of Broad Street & Dock Street.

City Hall - №22. Corner of Broad Street & Wall Street.

I notice that, unlike previous instalments, or at least this city hall, does not look THAT scale down. Which makes sense, taking into account that, at the time, American cities did not have many big buildings.

I found another painting.
The same area: (1st version of the Hall and 1st version of Trinity Church)

Printed on border: "The buildings to the right are the City Hall and the Presbyterian Church. The original Trinity Church is indicated in the distance. The stocks, whipping-post, cage, and pillory are shown at the head of Broad Street"

Colored version
http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/4704/4110148474cef54fde3do.jpg

Note:

The first Trinity Church was built in 1698, and faced the Hudson River —the direction merchants of the day regarded as far more important than narrow little Wall Street.
(It was a modest rectangular structure with a small porch and a steeple that faced the Hudson River, away from Broadway and Wall Street.)
That church burned down in 1776 when the British set fire to New York City.

The second Trinity was built in 1790. The new church was oriented with its entrance and steeple towards Wall Street.

SPOILERS!!!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity_Church_(Manhattan

According to historical records, Captain William Kidd (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Kidd) lent the runner and tackle from his ship for hoisting the stones. Well feom picture you call tell Connor is exploring benbeath the church.And since it is also confirmed by reading the trophy list that we´ll go this place:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oak_Island in which

"One theory is that the pit holds a pirate treasure hoard buried by Captain Kidd (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Kidd) or possibly Edward Teach (Blackbeard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackbeard)), who claimed he buried his treasure "where none but Satan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satan) and myself can find it.""

We can say that Connor is looking for something that Kidd hid.....

Bowling Green - New York City

Bowling Green is a small public park in Lower Manhattan at the foot of Broadway next to the site of the original Dutch fort of New Amsterdam. Built in 1733, originally including a bowling green, it is the oldest public park in New York City and is surrounded by its original 18th century fence.

On August 21, 1770, the British government erected a 4,000 pound (1,800 kg) gilded lead equestrian statue of King George III in Bowling Green.

On July 9, 1776, after the Declaration of Independence was read to Washington's troops at the current site of City Hall, local Sons of Liberty rushed down Broadway to Bowling Green, where they toppled the statue. The fence post finials of cast-iron crowns on the protective fence were sawed off, with the saw marks still visible today. The event is one of the most enduring images in the city's history.

The main building in the following screenshot appears like it might be King's College, which eventually became Columbia University and moved further north in the city. The college closed in 1776 when the Continental Army arrived in the city and didn't reopen until 1783. It was used as a military hospital by the Americans and then the British during the Revolution.

Also, this new screenshot looks like Connor is on top of the ruins of Trinity Church looking north along Broadway. You can see the spire of St. Paul's Chapel in the distance, as well as Oswego Market in the middle of the street (according to the great map of New York City posted above):

King's College in New York

A 'South East View of the City of New York in North America,' ca. 1763, by Thomas Howdell. The tallest spire is Trinity Church. (Museum of the City of New York)

The King's College building, completed in 1760, is the large building with the cupola. The scene, drawn in 1763, looks southeastward, with the Hudson River on the right. The spire of Trinity Church is visible to the right (west) end of the College building.
