  don't fight city hall
by yooperprof

Favorite thing: A classic example of late 19th century civic pride. For many years, this 300-foot tower was the tallest structure in the city. Architects H.C. Koch & Co. were inspired by Flemish guild halls in their design.

Because the city hall rests on marshy ground close to the Milwaukee River, the structure rests upon 25,000 wooden support piles!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
