Brooklyn Borough Hall designed by Calvin Pollard and Gamaliel King as the City Hall for the City of Brooklyn. Construction of Pollard's Greek Revival design began in 1834, but stopped because of lack of funds. It resumed in 1845, this time to King's design, which kept many aspects of Pollard's original. The buildng was completed in 1848. After the cupola was destroyed by fire in 1895, it was replaced in 1898 by a Victorian cast-iron cupola designed by Vincent C, Griffth and Stoughton & Stoughton. This was the same year that Brooklyn became a borough of Greater New York City, and the City Hall became Borough Hall. In 1987-89 Conklin & Rossant restored the building and installed the long-planned Statue of Justice on top of the cupola.
