Santiago City Hall (Muncipality of Santiago), on the right.


The Municipality of Santiago is downtown Greater Santiago. Greater Santiago is divided up into 21 communes. So each one has their own city hall.

From left to right: the main post office and the old customs, now a museum

Some of the prettier city halls of the 21 in Santiago:

Providencia's City Hall:


Las Condes' City Hall: (the one behind the brick building)


Ñuñoa's City Hall (after a party):



So here's the Greater Santiago City Hall, that rules over the WHOLE city:

My vote would go to LA City Hall, it has made a place for itself in popular culture
Funny that you should say that LA City Hall is one of the most recognisable in the world or has a place in popular culture. I've NEVER heard of it or seen it before! Maybe that applies to the US only.

Thr LA City Hall is on the badge of the LAPD and was pictured all the time on the TV show Dragnet. It also may be seen on any cop show originating from LA. So, yes, it is probably most famous in the US.

If Detroit's old City Hall hadn't of been torn down, I would have nominated it as an honorable mention:





But, I really like Paris' Hotel de Ville (City Hall)

buffalo's is really quite amazing!

i think NY's municipal counts... because they simply did what detroit should have done, built the bigger more spacious one onthe side instead of tearing down that beauty

Tel Aviv

Although not the newest or nicest, it is under renovation and contains much historical significance. Rabin was murdered here, and this picture commemmorates Israel's past leaders.
