It is no secret that I am a big fan of Philadelphia’s City Hall, and it would seem I’m not the only one. Check out this New York Times article:
Three decades to put up one building might be considered long enough. For Philadelphia’s remarkable City Hall, it has been an additional century – and counting – without anyone being able to see it as intended: a towering Victorian confection in gleaming white.
It is a nice, and quick, overview of the history of this amazing building. Every time I walk by it I still just stare at it and I have been walking by it at least 3 times a week for almost 4 years.
