Located at the center of City Hall Park, this 1812 building features a Neoclassical facade that I had to admire from afar. That's because fencing around its perimeter keeps the public at bay, with entry only allowed to those with business appointments or on tours....More

Hi, marriages are actually handled at the City Clerk's Office Marriage Bureau at 141 Worth Street, not at City Hall.

For such a vital hub within such a large community this building seems to impressed at many levels. It is clean, well managed, historically interesting and most importantly offers clean and accessible and safe rest rooms. Definitely worth a visit.

Impressive Architecture with construction finished in 1812. It is the oldest City Hall that still functions with intended offices, like city Mayor. The style of the building exterior is French Renaissance. When we visited on Memorial Weekend we could only see it from the outside.
