To New Yorkers’ chagrin, New York’s City Hall loses the title of “oldest continuously used city hall in the nation” to the city hall in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Even so, Mayor Bloomberg claimed such following a 2007 renovation of City Hall–that it was “the oldest and longest serving city hall in the nation.” However, the Perth Amboy building purportedly still has remnants of its 1767 structure, which did house rooms for city governance.
