Buffalo City Hall

A Buffalo landmark, City Hall was dedicated on July 1, 1932. It is located in Niagara Square, which many consider the cultural heart of Buffalo. The 32-story-high structure overlooks the waterways of Lake Erie and the shores of Canada. Its decorative art depicts important elements of local history, including themes of the Iroquois Indian nation, the development of the Erie Canal and United States and Canadian relations.

City Hall is located at 65 Niagara Square in Buffalo, NY 14202. Buffalo Tours conducts free daily weekday tours of City Hall from 12-1 PM.

The two bronze statues of Grover Cleveland and Millard Fillmore outside of city hall were sculpted in 1930 by prominent New York City sculptor Bryant Baker. Fillmore stands on the south side and Cleveland on the north. Both serve as a tribute to Buffalo’s rich political history.
