DOWNTOWN—A defense is mounted for the ugliest municipal seat on Earth: "Bostonians should be proud of their City Hall, a daring departure from the revivalist and neoclassical styles typical of American seats of government.

As they disappear, the remaining incarnations of the form become that much more precious." [WBUR]
