Join us as Sharon Cramer, League member and Preservation Buffalo Niagara docent, leads us on our own private one-hour tour!

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, City Hall is a stunning example of Art Deco architecture. Learn about Buffalo’s history and how the building and its many decorative elements celebrate governance at its best. Afterward, those who wish can accompany Sharon to the Observation Deck for a breathtaking view!

Parking is limited near City Hall, with paid parking in ramps, surface lots and some street spaces; plan on two hours. We recommend parking at the League office and taking public or other transportation to City Hall. Building access is easiest from the South Elmwood Avenue entrance; there is an elevator to the first floor lobby.

Note: To enjoy the tour, attendees should be able to stand in place for 15 to 20 minutes. There is seating along the route, plus elevator access to the Mayor’s Office and the Common Council chambers where our tour will end. From the elevator on the 25th floor, there are 60 steps to the Observation Deck.
