​Nothing to Fear Here on Friday the 13th


CMGC Elevator PadTo quote Stevie Wonder, “Very superstitious, writing’s on the wall … ” But that’s not true for the County, at least employees who work in the Government Center downtown because there is no “13” on the wall or the elevator pad. That’s right, we don’t have a 13th floor, so come on down, even folks who have paraskevidekatriaphobia will be comfortable here! 

But’s it’s not just a local anomaly. Many modern buildings don’t have a 13th floor. According to the Otis elevator company, up to 85 percent of elevator panels omit the number 13.
