Former Buffalo Memorial Auditorium"Two homes for the Buffalo Sabres are visible: Buffalo Memorial Auditorium (1970-96, in front) and HSBC Arena (1996-present). Taken from the observation deck of Buffalo City Hall."
Buffalo, New York’s Minucipal Auditorium was a $2.7 million New Deal-funded project. Ground was broken on November 30, 1939 and the auditorium opened October 14, 1940.
Sources differ with regard to the source of the New Deal funding — an AP article claims it was the PWA while others claim the WPA constructed the building.
The Municipal Auditorium was demolished in early 2009.
