Default What city in the US has the Best City Hall?

What city in the US has the Best City Hall?

And what I mean by this - is it's looks and architecture. New or old, which city hall in the country do you think looks best?

Here's the largest one in the United States: (Buffalo City Hall, Buffalo, NY)

The city hall in Buffalo is HUGE!!!! Impressive for a city of its size.
That looks like it is bigger than CA's state capital, let alone a city hall

The three best looking city halls in CA in my opinion are:
San Francisco

Los Angeles

Beverly Hills

Those are my picks for best in the West, but it may be hard to beat out the older architecture of the East.

Detroit had one of the most beautiful city hall's in the entire country. Sadly the city decided to demolish it in 1961. It was very confidential in those days. I still think today that they should have not demolished the beauty.

I guess it depends on what you like, so i guess there is no real answer.
I mean I'm Texas oriented, but if you like more modern stuff then Dallas' and Austin's city hall are ok:

But then again if you like the White house looking clone stuff, sort of like the State Capitol of Texas... San Fran's and BV Hills does a good job... but if you want a traditional but still slightly modern, Houston's and Los Angeles' do well too.

that's houston's... but I mean I guess my favorite city hall would be the one that works most efficiently and effectively...
