Spin City

City Hall is the official seat of Government in New York. It is located in Lower Manhattan on Murray Street between Broadway and Park Row and across from one of the campuses of Pace University. We happened to be walking along this route and discovered it quite by accident.

City Hall houses the Mayor's office and the New York City Council. Press conferences concerning city politics are frequently held on the steps of the building. The mayor's staff and thirteen municipal agencies are located in the nearby Manhattan Municipal Building, one of the largest governmental buildings in the world.

Fences surround the building, with a strong security presence by the NYPD. We found this out when Mrs H decided to take a picture of the NYPD officers! More on this in a future post...
