The New City Hall

John Galante

The new City Hall was started in 1929 and will be finished in 1932. The City Hall is thirty two stories high. How I like to watch the men at work! I like to watch the elevator carry the men up so high. Sometimes I see the men walking on the top. I wonder if they are afraid to walk there? I see so many trucks bringing stones for the building. The put them on a long rope and a machine pulls them to where they are needed. I saw a man go up with the stones. The workers throw the broken bricks down a long square box at the side of the building.
