All four shots above are of the Spring Street facade of City Hall--the first two are from the actual opening of the tv show.
I always wondered what that building was in the opening. Thanks for the heads up!

Does anybody know, with terrorism always in the back of one's mind, would you be allowed to take photos of city hall like that today? I took photos inside Union Station back in the nineties but I can't imagine being allowed to do that today.
