Imagine a city hall with 700 rooms. This place is huge. Interesting history may be seen at
An article found on facebook caught my eye today, titled, "The 10 most beautiful city halls in the U.S." Memories of my trip to the top in 2012 were shared on one of my older blogs. Since it made the top 10 in the article, I'm posting, just in case you want to visit or see if your city hall is on the list.
We saw the mayor, Michael Nutter, 98th mayor, run down all these stairs.
Lovely tiled hallway, almost ghost-like, without a person around.
Clock tower, where few tourists go. I was very fortunate that I was able to see all 4 clocks. If I remember correctly, only 4 visitors at a time. We were there during a week in February. The entire building is closed on weekends and holidays.
37-foot bronze statue of William Penn.
