Brooklyn Borough Hall

209 Joralemon St
Brooklyn, NY 11209

Downtown Brooklyn


Built between 1846 and 1851, Brooklyn’s oldest public building, designed by Gamaliel King, was formerly Brooklyn’s City Hall. The stately, Greek Revival–style building is known and admired for its impossibly high columns, massive staircase, two-story rotunda lobby and stunning clock tower. Not surprisingly, the formidable structure is now registered as a New York City landmark.
