Buffalo, NY – Mayor Byron W. Brown today reminded City of Buffalo residents that Buffalo’s City Hall will be closed for business tomorrow, November 11, in observance of the Veterans Day holiday.

 Mayor Brown also asked Buffalo residents to reflect on the bravery and sacrifices of Buffalo’s military service members, past and present.

 “Our service members and veterans come from all walks of life, all races, all religions, but they share the fundamental qualities of courage, pride, determination, selflessness, dedication to duty and integrity, to serve a cause greater than themselves. So we say ‘Thank You’ to those who paid the ultimate price for freedom, and to all current and former service members in the City of Buffalo and across Western New York,” Mayor Brown said.

 “Active military members, veterans and their families need and deserve our attention every day.   I urge all of our citizens to take the time to thank an active service person or veteran for all they do so we can live in freedom. It’s a small gesture, but I guarantee it will be appreciated,” Mayor Brown added.

Downtown Buffalo will be lit up the next 3 nights as part of the BuffaloLIT program

The dome of Buffalo City Hall and the City’s Buffalo Landmark Illumination Team partners will light up in periwinkle tonight to mark National Stomach Cancer Awareness Month.

The goal of the observation is to create greater awareness and knowledge that will lead to earlier detection of stomach cancer, directly associated with higher long-term survival rates. Money raised for stomach cancer research will result in better detection, treatments, improved survival rates, and, ultimately, a cure for this deadly disease.

The City Hall Dome and BuffaloLIT partners will be lit in red, white and blue, Thursday, November 11th in observation of Veterans Day.

On Friday, November 12, the City Hall dome and BuffaloLIT partners will light up in blue to mark World Pneumonia Day. Worldwide, pneumonia is the world’s leading infectious killer of children under the age of 5, but is preventable with a vaccine.


Established in 2009, the goal of the annual observance is to raise awareness of pneumonia’s toll and promote resources to prevent and treat the disease.
