For a fine, wholesome day of reality-based entertainment, I turn my television off and head downtown to the New York State Criminal Court House. There's 17 floors, and bound to be a thriller somewhere. Rape, murder, crack whores, theft, Puffy . . . it's all here. Don't be bashfulathese courts are yours (air-conditioned too), so come when you wantathere's always a good seat. Notice how many incompetent lawyers and patronizing judges we have. Watch a witness sweat it out on the stand and beleaguered family members really cry. Popcorn is permitted. No cases from noon to 1. To volunteer for jury duty, see fifth floor. Hours: Mon-Wed 8am-1am, Thu-Sun 9am-1am
