Erected in 1911, Chicago's City Hall contains the

Mayor's office and those of the City Clerk, City Treasurer, Aldermen, and the Chicago City Council Room. Greeting visitors are four granite relief panels depicting city government: playgrounds, parks, schools, and water supply. The building also includes elegant marble staircases and bronze tablets of past City Halls.

More than the official seat of government in Chicago,

it has a "green" roof utilizing revolutionary energy conservation techniques, and home to more than

100 species of plants - it's open to the public

during the summer months.
