  • Decent view from outside, building is in City Hall Park and next to Brooklyn Bridge. Great spot to relax, eat from food trucks, and people watch.  more »
  • We didnt go inside. We just passed it as we were walking to another attraction. It is a beautiful building and worthy of a look if you are in the area.  more »

  • You have to book online for this free tour beforehand, but it is so worth it. Learnt so much about the history of the area and City Hall. Had access to City Hall Chambers, plus function room with amazing artwork and historical pieces including Washington's desk. The guide was brilliant pointing out all the hidden details on the paintings and sculptures, that I would of missed on my own. Highly recommended!!!
  • Very nice place loved it met the mayor
