Huntington's city hall building

I was stopped at the light at the intersection of 8th St and 5th Ave and had a chance to take a good look at the architecture of our city hall. You know what? It's actually a very nice building.


Boy is it filthy. It looks like it hasn't been properly cleaned in decades. It is a shade of post-industrial Rust Belt gray.

And those ugly blue-green panels. Yuck. I guess it was meant to be Moneyton's new emblem at some point in the past, but the design is helluh-dated and the panels are helluh-faded.

It really is time to clean up city hall (in the literal, not figurative, sense...I like the current administration). Just as soon as we pave roads, fix the sewer, sort out the pension issues, hire more cops, do something with KineticPark, fund the parks, solve the drug and crime problems...

OK, maybe pressure washing city hall isn't a top priority. But maybe cleaning it up would be a sign that we haven't given up all hope just yet.

You'd think they'd clean it with all the press coming to town for the movie.
