The Buffalo City Hall

 

The Buffalo City Hall is listed under the United States National Register of Historic Places. It holds address at 65 Niagara Square, Buffalo City, New York, and is the seat for the municipal government if Buffalo City. The art deco structure is one of the tallest and largest government buildings in America. Standing at 32 storeys, it is also one of the tallest structures in the western part of New York.

 

The city hall was designed by architect George Dietel who was assisted by John J. Wade. Albert Stewart was the artist behind the building’s beautiful friezes while Rene Paul Chambellan made the sculpture. The Buffalo City Hall is also one of the most expensive city halls in America. It cost almost seven million dollars to build.


Construction began on September 16, 1929 when ground was broken. On May 14, 1930, the corner stone of the building was laid. A year later, on November 10, 1931, the structure was completed, and

in July of the following year, the city hall was dedicated. Of the 32 floors, 26 are used as office space.

The building’s total floor area amounts to over five hundred thousand square feet. The structure

is so massive, that it takes about ten days to have all its windows cleaned.
