Built in 1846, the Brooklyn Borough Hall and Plaza is the oldest building in Brooklyn which was designed by Gamaliel King. Built over a span of five years, this four-story building covers 55,000 square feet (51,000 square meters) and boasts stunning Greek Revival architectural facades. Previously known as the Brooklyn City Hall, tourists are overwhelmed by the towering bronze statues, Ionic columns, dome ceiling and iron cupola. This sight is a must-see! For those interested in fresh fruits, vegetables and hormone-free dairy products the plaza holds a farmer's market three days a week. The market is open year-round and has been part of this thriving community for 25 years.
