“Iconic”

City of Pasadena City Hall
Ranked #6 of 52 things to do in Pasadena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 January 2018 via mobile

Pasadena city hall is so iconic it appears in many tv shows such as The Big Bang Theory. You'll find yourself looking for it now next time you watch. It's a beautiful spot to capture Kodak moments. Don't forget to check out the courtyard.

Sheldon and Penny live next to the Pasadena City Hall. Background scenes and references are made during the Big Bang Theory. Mission Impossible filmed many episodes at City Hall due to its unique architecture, Fun place to wander. More than a bureaucratic hang out.

All these years and I have never actually GONE inside City Hall...now i am glad i did. It is beautiful in there with fountains and gardens galore and a view at sunset that was inspiring.

Beautiful massive building with an internal courtyard. Great picture spot, from all angles. If you are in Old Pasadena, stop and walk through the courtyard. City Hall is steps away from the also-monumental public library with a wonderful high-ceilinged reading room reminiscent of the Boston Public Library at Copley Square and the NY Public Library on Fifth Avenue. Long wooden tables, green hooded table lamps. Wonderful place to sit, work, read, go on-line, etc.

Pasadena has always been very close to my heart, and having the opportunity to finally visit the Pasadena City Hall was extraordinary. From the fine architecture to an exceptional natural light setting is every artist dream for inspirations.

Let’s all be conscious and respectful when visiting the property; this is a city’s gem and free to the public. I’m grateful to have been able to take a few personal pictures and I look forward to visiting again.

Enjoy !
