Buffalo City Hall is the seat for municipal government in the City of Buffalo, New York. Located at 65 Niagara Square, the 32-story Art Deco building was completed in 1931 by Dietel, Wade & Jones.

The 378-foot-tall (115.2 m) building (398 feet [121.3 m] when measured from street level to the tip of the tower) is one of the largest and tallest municipal buildings in the United States and is also one of the tallest buildings in Western New York. It was designed by chief architect John Wade with the assistance of George Dietel. The friezes were sculpted by Albert Stewart and the sculpture executed by Rene Paul Chambellan. The foyer features a bronze tablet honoring Mayor Roesch, created in 1937 by regional sculptor, William Ehrich.

  • Nice old historic building, great architecture, the best part on the very top is an observation deck that looks out over the city and lake Erie and Buffalo waterfront.  more »
  • While there to attend a preservation board meeting in late February, I was astounded by the beauty of the lobby and the halls that I had access to. A movie, "Nightmare Alley", was being filmed there.....  more »

  • There are some beautiful buildings in Buffalo but the city hall building takes the cake. I don't know of a city hall anywhere that looks as impressive as this one.
  • Free and fun! Buffalo from a birds-eye view. Also, if reading this in May/June 2019 or so, be sure to indulge in the "Pre-K Picasso" artwork in the lobby. SO cool.
