Buffalo Memorial Auditorium (demolished) – Buffalo NY

Description

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.
