Niagara Mohawk Building: An Art Deco Masterpiece

If you were to ask most people to name an art deco classic in the state of New York the Chrysler Building would probably be your most common answer. Upstate New York is probably the last place you’d expect to find anything art deco that could rival anything in NYC but the Niagara Mohawk Building in Syracuse has done just that.

Built in 1932 it was the headquarters for what was then known as “the nation’s largest electric utility company.” The classic building is of the Niagara Mohawk power utility company and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Niagara Hudson Building in 2010. It’s been described as the “An outstanding example of Art Deco architecture and a symbol of the Age of Electricity.”
