This art deco treasure lies at the western edge of a very large roundabout. It towers 28 stories, making it the tallest city hall in America. The exterior and the interior vie for your attention to detail. In a word, this building is phenomenal. You can take the elevator (free) to the observation deck which provides a beautiful panoramic view of Buffalo and the Ontario shoreline and the fast flowing waters of the Niagara River as it takes its flow from Lake Erie. This takes place in the heart of the downtown walking venues.
