We decided to venture into downtown Rochester to the Monroe County Office Building to take a few pictures of the Christmas tree in the atrium.
Here is a bit of information about this building:
The Rochester City Hall Atrium is a true architectural masterpiece. Each year
thousands of visitors come to tour Rochester City Hall and are left inspired by its architecture. The three-story high hall is surrounded by walls of symmetrical arches and ornate Tennesee marble columns, decorated with hand carved capitals, that support each arch. Cast iron "Liberty" goddesses wearing eagle talon necklaces stand watch between the arches on the lower floor of the Atrium. The figures symbolize America. On the second level, lions cast in plaster take the place of the "Liberty" goddesses. The third floor sports a collection of plaster Neptune heads that oversee the entire Atrium.
On sunny days, streaks of bright sunlight cast into the Atrium through the glass ceiling. An Atrium fountain was designed to repeat the arch theme that if found throughout the building.
I sure hope you have enjoyed the photos...we are truly enjoying this project!
