City Hall Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

This 700-room French Second Empire structure designed by John McArthur was completed in 1901. The enormous structure with its solid masonry walls was almost obsolete, and in the early 20C there was talk of demolishing it. The very cost of demolition saved it, and City Hall still functions as Philadelphia's ceremonial "palace".
