Brooklyn's Borough Hall is part of the landscape of Downtown Brooklyn for local residents. That's where the Boro Prez operates. There are weekly farmers markets in the plaza in front of this lovely building. The outdoor Brooklyn Book Festival takes place here, too, as does the lighting of the Christmas tree and Hanukkah menorah, the GLBTQ annual wedding expo, Caribbean-American Month celebrations and so much more.
But the Brooklyn Borough Hall itself is also a historic monument. So take a sec to savor a tourist destination building that, were it located in Madrid or London, you'd read about and maybe make a trek to go visit. Profiling historic Brooklyn Borough Hall.
