Staten Island’s 100-year-old Borough Hall is the seat of government for the Borough. Featuring beautiful French Renaissance design elements and a high clock tower, it is one of the most recognizable landmarks on Staten Island.

The grand marble lobby contains a series of Depression Era bas-reliefs and murals which allow visitors to take a walk through history. The 13 murals are 6 ½ by 13-foot oil-on-canvas masterpieces and depict significant moments in Staten Island’s past. They are the first comprehensive series of paintings to decorate a public building on Staten Island, and the murals are the largest and most accessible WPA collection in New York City.
