Humble beginnings

The scene on Tuesday at the Bronxdale Houses public housing projects in the Bronx borough of New York City, where President Obama's pick for the Supreme Court, Judge Sonia Sotomayor, grew up. U.S. President Barack Obama announced United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit Judge Sonia Sotomayor as his Supreme Court nominee, replacing Supreme Court Justice David Souter. If confirmed, the 54-year-old Sotomayor would be the first Hispanic judge to sit on the court.Getty Images photo by Spencer Platt
