I prefer Toronto's old one than the new one. The new one's concrete facade, although a testament of that era, requires a lot of maintenance especially due to the extreme temperature and weather fluctuations between seasons.

For me, the best old City Hall is New York City's. In terms of more modern ones, it's a three-way tie for me between Toronto, Boston, and London.

This is the old G÷ttingen City Hall, it was built between 1369 and 1443:




The new one was built in 1976, I personally prefer it, because its taller.

The Capitol. Rome

The Capitol, or Campidoglio, in Rome. The Senators' Palace, or City Hall, was built as a medieval fortress upon the ancient tabularium (roman state archive) still overlooking the fori. The front was turned the opposite direction: Michelangelo designed the Capitol's Square in the XVI century as a suitable outlook from the stairs climbing up Capitol Hill.
Palace and Square are definitely entagled in a single concept.

Siena - Palazzo Pubblico (City Hall) - Italy
The Palazzo Pubblico (town hall) is a palace in the city of Siena, located in the Tuscany region of Italy. Construction began in 1297 and its original purpose was to house the republican government, consisting of the Podesta and Council of Nine.
The outside of the structure is an example of Italian medieval architecture with Gothic influences. The lower story is stone; the upper crenelatted stories are made of brick. The facade of the palace is curved slightly inwards (concave) to reflect the outwards curve (convex) of the Piazza del Campo, Siena's central square of which the Palace is the focal point. The campanile or bell tower, Torre del Mangia, was built between 1325 and 1344 with its crown designed by the painter, Lippo Memmi. The tower was designed to be taller than the tower in neighboring rival Florence; at the time it was the tallest structure in Italy. It was fitted with a mechanical clock during the mid 14th century.
Its design was used as the basis for the Dock Tower in Grimsby, England constructed in 1852.
Odense City Hall (Denmark) was greatly inspired from Palazzo Pubblico.
