From the newsroom: Boston City Hall in need of repair

Download Audio

Happy Juneteenth!  We hope you’re taking some time to celebrate and reflect on this important day.

The WBUR newsroom covers a lot of stories, and we aren't always able to get to them all on the show. So, today we're bringing you one of those pieces while Team Common works on some reporting we're really excited to share with you soon.

Today’s story comes from reporter Walter Wuthmann.

Boston’s City Hall building is pretty polarizing. Some love it, but not everyone is into 1960s Brutalist architecture. Still, it’s a 55-year-old landmark that needs a lot of repairs. Walt spent a day looking into what it takes now, and what may be needed in the future, to keep this building running.

Can you take a few minutes and fill out our survey? It would go a long way in helping us make the kind of show you want to hear. Take the survey here.
