Here is a view of downtown Buffalo from the marina. One of the buildings that can be seen in the background is City Hall.
City Hall was designed by architect John Wade, and construction began in 1929. The building officially opened for business in 1931. The design of the building is called "art deco." Many aspects of City Hall are very interesting architecturally, and are described in a good amount of detail at the website at http://www.ci.buffalo.ny.us/Home/Leadership/Mayor/CityHallHistory
