5. City Hall

Completed in 1812, New York’s City Hall is one of the oldest City Halls in the nation still serving its original purpose, and the third home of New York City’s government. It is a National Historic Landmark and an NYC Landmark, and the rotunda, lit by a central oculus and graced by a “floating” staircase, is an NYC interior landmark. The plaza, rotunda, City Council Chamber, and Governor’s Room will be open. Before you visit, read our guide to the secrets of City Hall so you know what to look for.
