The Brooklyn Municipal Building was built in 1924. Designed by McKenzie, Voorhees & Gmelin, the construction cost $5,800,000. It is located at 210 Joralemon Street. It contains: the city clerk office (with a marriage bureau); and offices for the Departments of Buildings, Probation, Finance, and Environmental Protection. In July 2012 the Landmark Preservation Commission approved an upgrade to the first few stories and add much commercial signage. In 2016 renovation was done on two cellar levels and two floors. In 2020 it was announced that the building would be renamed for the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who lived in Brooklyn. Mayor Bill de Blasio attributed this honor to illustrating to the locals about the “great things on the world stage,” this Brooklyner had done.Plan to visit Brooklyn Municipal Building and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended New York City attractions using our New York City trip planning site.

From my experience,The people here are somewhat helpful and not rude however if you go here to get an ID because you signed up online on IDNYC ,the documents you've selected online aren't valid enough because they require you to bring your birth certificate although (online it says you don't need one).So, if you don't have your birth certificate don't waste your money going there.I would recommend you go somewhere else for an ID because i noticed you have wait online to give in your documents to get a ticket then wait even longer on another line for your ticket to be called,not only that but they have metal detectors before you enter the building as well.
