Jacksonville should celebrate that this building is still with us!  We've lost so much of downtown...the transformation of Cohen's into City Hall is one of the right moves the city has made.

What a great story, and a great building. Excellent work, guys.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?
