The interior is finished in California marble, Indiana limestone, and Eastern oak. From the center of the lobby, a wide marble stiarcase leads to the second-floor gallery.
Built of gray California granite with blue and gold burnished ironwork, it was designed in a French Renaissance style. In plan it measures 408 by 285 feet, enclosing a square rotunda covered by the 112 foot diameter dome.
The San Francisco City Hall is located in the Civic Center, a complex of public buildings grouped around the Civic Center Plaza.
The top of the dome is 11 feet 7 inches taller than the United States Capitol in Washington.
Arguably the "finest public building in the world".
Designated City Landmark #21 on March 13, 1970.
Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk were assassinated here in 1978.
Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe were married here in 1954.
There is $400,000 worth of gold in the dome's design.
The main floor of the Rotunda is approximately 75 feet square.
