What are the top public sector jobs for a 1L Summer in NYC?

If you were to rank the top 10 public sector jobs in NYC, what would they be? In terms of future career prospects in the private sector, does it even matter?

Judges, US Attorney's Office, NY State Attorney General, one of the DA's, certain government agencies?

I can't tell you the real answer, but based on the TLS Zeitgeist it seems to be:

USAO- SDNY
USAO- EDNY
Fed. Judicial internship
Manhattan DA
NYC Law Dept.
NYAG
Other DAs
State jud. internships

All the financial regulators
USAO for SDNY/EDNY
Manhattan DA
NYC Law Dept
NJ USAO
Other federal regulatory agencies
NY AG
Everyone else

But no, it doesn't really matter. The only way it might is if you want to work in a field that will have specific contact with a regulatory agency, in which case any contacts you have with that agency will help your private sector career.
