San Francisco City Hall
The city hall building is the site of some of San Francisco's finest moments. In 1954 Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were married here. In the early 21st century, over 100 same-sex couples were married by Mayor Gavin Newsom in the foyer. The Renaissance architecture rivals some of the country's most historical structures. Two Parisian architects designed and constructed the building from 1913-1915, and the dome is based on the one crowning St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. A small store, open during normal business hours, sells traditional San Francisco souvenirs including T-shirts, posters and postcards.
City Hall is a neat place to go see as it has a lot of other stuff to do very near by. The homeless will be sleeping in the front lawn of the city, but where else would you rather be if you were homeless? The food selection is good near by and main transpertation is a block away.
