City Hall New YorkUSA´s oldest City Hall


City Hall is the headquarters of the New York adminstration. Here the mayor of the town also have his office. The present Mayor in New York is Bill de Blasio (2014) and he is the 109th.

The building is an architectural achievement and was built between the years 1803 and 1812. City Hall is included in the the National Register of Historic Places. There was an architect competition announced before the construction of City Hall. The winning team were Joseph François Mangin (1794-1818) a French immigrant and John McComb, Jr. (1763-1853) a native Newyorker. They won $350 for their proposal. The construction work was delayed because the members of the cabinet thought the proposal was to extravagant. The architects had to think again and reduced the size a bit and also changed the building material to brownstone at the rear of the building. This to lower the costs. Also the conflicts between the labors and the outbreak of yellow fever further slowed the construction. The building opended to the public in 1812.

The exterior facade reflects that of the French Renaissance (with big curved windows) and the interior that of the American-Georgian style with columns and corner pillar in Corinthian and Ionisk style. On the inside, the rotunda is a soaring space with a grand marble double stairway rising up to the second floor, where ten fluted Corinthian columns support the coffered dome. The City Hall´s roof has a remarkable cupola with a staty of the Justice. In the 1950´s they replaced the earlier brownstone and the marble fasade to limestone.
