It's always good to have a lifeboat, just in case

Boat at Boston City Hall flood

There was some flooding on the third floor of City Hall today - and workers knew to have a small boat on hand, just in case.

The white flag of surrender?

Is City Hall just giving up?

The elected officials or the building? Or both?

Ugh the constructionists around here. What I want is a concrete plan for cleaning up that mess.

They can form a plan for things to function again.

Updated online Floor by Floor Directory of current Boston City Hall Offices... would be a good way to make the Boston City Hall building's maze more accessible for folks with limited vision, for hard of hearing folks, for ESL English Second Language folks, for all folks.

It's been said Boston City Clerk's spouse is hard of hearing and City Councilor Baker is hard of hearing.

Crowdsourced, an online Floor by Floor Directory could include Offices as well as each Floor's interesting current facets/art/photography and architectural peculiarities noted on a walk around a Floor!...

Have you been to City Hall recently? Every floor has a tv monitor/kiosk with floor plans showing each department's location visually and there is also a text version with department names and room numbers...

As SteveE notes (and as I have told you in the past), each floor now has a directory on a large screen near the main elevators. If you're not happy with those screens, that's one thing, but otherwise, it sounds like you're complaining just to complain and haven't actually been to City Hall over the past year (during business hours, there are also designated guides standing just past the main security checkpoint just dying to help people find things).

I spent the day in Cambridge, not far away, and we had almost no rain. Certainly not enough rain to cause this. Was the weather that different on the south side of the Charles?

It was dry outside at the time there, too.

Menino always wanted a city hall on the waterfront. This is it.
