"The Hall of Records" City Hall New York Tip by MM212
City Hall New York, New York City: 29 reviews and 70 photos
Built between 1899-1909, the Hall of Records is one of New York's most beautiful Beaux-Arts style buildings. Its architect John Thomas had Opéra Garnier of Paris in mind when he designed certain parts of the building. Although originally named the Hall of Records, the building from the beginning housed both the Hall of Records and the Surrogate's Court. For some reason, in 1962, the official name of the building was changed to Surrogate's Courthouse. Around 2009, the building went through a restoration and cleaning project that brought it back to its former glory.
