5 points of interest at City Hall

Most of us can’t count the number of times we have seen City Hall, but have you ever been inside? There are lots of reasons to check it out, including these five. Read more

The observation deck

It is amazing how few Buffalonians have been here. Go up and feast your eyes on downtown and the river.

Toledo scale

Weren’t we the nation’s second fattest city at one point? The large scale is a monument to our almost-supremacy. It is found in the entrance.

World-class file boxes

They are visible through virtually every window, crammed up against the glass. Digitize? Us? Never!

Antique water fountains

These date back to at least the Frank X. Schwab administration (1922-29).

Marriage license and dog license bureaus

They are right next door to each other!

    The water fountains depicted in the pics are not original to City Hall. These are most likely from the 60's. One only has to look at the holes in the wall to show where the original fountains were installed......No matter what the age, the unfortunate thing is that none of them work.
