HISTORY OF GATEWAY BUILDING:
The Genesee Gateway Historic District is one of the most recognizable commercial areas in Buffalo, New York. This unique row of commercial buildings has long been an iconic and identifiable location in the City. The original buildings were built in the 1840’s to 1930’s to include the Seeberg Building which is among the oldest architecture in Buffalo and most exceptionally unique in shape as well.
THE GATEWAY CITY DELI will celebrate and recognize the historical nature of the building and the City of Buffalo once called “The Gateway City to the West”. Being located at the western terminus of the Erie Canal, the city of Buffalo is both a testament to and beneficiary of the canal’s power which directly influenced our growth and prosperity, making our city an icon of culture, architecture and the arts. What is now the “The Gateway City Deli” was once the Seeberg Building which is the oldest part of Genesee Gateway complex, and one of the oldest buildings in Buffalo.
Our Mission is to “Nurture our guests with warm hospitality and fresh food, and contribute to the future of the city while honoring its rich history one sandwich at a time.”
