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 398-foot-tall (121.3 m) building 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.
Buffalo City Hall was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.

  • 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 »
  • 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.
