Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

The Raleigh Municipal Building

This is a top-down view of the Avery C. Upchurch Raleigh Government Complex. Coincidentially, this was the location of the very first post to Goodnight, Raleigh!. You can also see a “then and now” series of the water fountain on Hargett Street in front of this building that has been dry for some time.
