City Hall of Buffalo, NY
in my opinion this building is the best example of Art Deco architecture. It epitomizes the mix of stream lines and ancient world architecture that was the main ideal of Art Deco. Plus couldn’t you see some kind of occult activity happening on the roof of this like in Ghostbuster? =p

Omaha Union Station (1931) was the first Art Deco train station in the United States. It closed for rail service in the 1970s and now houses the Durham Museum. Omaha’s other passenger train station, the Italianate Burlington Station (1898) also closed when a ****** modern Amtrak station was built behind it (the Burlington is now being turned into luxury apartments).

Civic Theater in Farmington ( 1940 ) - a suburb of Detroit
The Civic Theater, located at 33332 Grand River in the heart of Downtown Farmington - a suburb of Detroit, first opened in 1940. The Art Deco styled theater was designed by Architect Howard Crane, who also designed the Fox Theater. It is currently owned by the City of Farmington. On September 1, 1999, the City of Farmington purchased the Farmington Civic Theatre from the Hohler family, who had operated it for more than 59 years. Outside of closing for a short period of time in 1999 due to renovations to it’s balcony, it has been open during it’s entire lifetime.
