Coral Gables City Hall Part 1

The other day I stopped by City Hall in Coral Gables.  I have seen and driven past this place so many times since, well a long time a go in a galaxy far far away when I was 15, just learning to drive and anxious to play every golf course in Miami.  Me and my buddy Jon would always come down to the Granada course (we couldn’t afford Biltmore at 15) and play through the 2nd hole that puts you right next to this fantastic building.  But I never noticed it and even recently with all the time I spend chronicling The City of Coral Gables for The Coral Gables Blog I had never stopped to notice how cool it is.  My favorite part is the George Merrick statue is that stares down Miracle Mile into the Heart of Coral Gables.
