It was built in 1892 and is only a block away from the Sixth Floor Museum (JFK Assassination site).

Wasn't the Allegheny County courthouse in a movie?

Those 2nd Empire wedding cakes were considered monstrosities once. New York had one -- post office in city hall park-- but demolished it in the '30s. Washington still has one-- built as the State, War and Navy Building. Neither of these have/had a tower though.

Yeah, Boston used to have more buildings like that as well such as the old Post Office Building (after which Post Office Square is named) and the old Insurance Building.

Here's a close-up of the tower on the latter building.
