The Buffalo City Court Building, named Frank A. Sedita City Court, for Buffalo mayor Frank A. Sedita, is a 10-story court house built in 1974 for the city of Buffalo, New York. It is in Niagara Square and adjacent to Buffalo City Hall.
The structure is a classic example of Brutalist architecture; its façade is dominated by large Precast concrete panels with narrow windows. The design was conceived by Buffalo architectural firm Pfohl, Roberts and Biggie's architecture firm with limited windows to keep the courtrooms and judges' chambers free from outside distraction.
The building houses the 8th Judicial district Buffalo Housing Court, Landlord/Tenant Court, Small Claims, Commercial Claims, Criminal Court, and several parts of New York State Supreme Court for the County of Erie.
