Taking wayyy too many pictures

Cleveland

What is this marble spiral staircase doing in the Cuyahoga County Courthouse in Cleveland, Ohio?? It looks like it belongs in a palace.

And why is there a lot of freakishly fancy European architecture a few blocks away from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? 

And...why does the R&R Hall of Fame look just like the pyramid at the Louvre?
