City Hall and Observation Deck

Postby TheLastGentleman » Thu Jan 11, 2018 1:25 am

Went to the top of city hall to get some pictures. Gorgeous building, and what an incredible feature! Been meaning to get up there, just never found the time

That is a great building, especially the interior. But that view is a case in point downtown still has a lot of surface lots to develop.

I was directed to the basement, and a guard accompanied me to the top. Closes at 3, at least the day I went

Nice. Oak Tower would look so much better if they took all that shit off the roof, or surrounded it with an Art Deco wall, similar to Municipal Auditorium.

Best case scenario would be getting all the cladding off to show the original gothic detail.
