Lit City

For more than a century, Western New York has been home to some of the most significant and innovative writers. LIT CITY is a public art initiative which highlights Buffalo’s renowned literary legacy.

On June 7, 2016, Mayor Byron Brown designated Washington Street, beginning at Lafayette Square and continuing past Just Buffalo Literary Center and the Western New York Book Arts Center to the dig Innovation Center hub at Virginia Street, as The Literary Corridor of Buffalo.

“The City of Buffalo has an extraordinary literary history and legacy, is home to one of the country’s top literary centers, and has an active and growing literary community.”
—Mayor Byron Brown

We invite everyone to come see the LIT CITY banners in person, and visit any of the literary destinations along Washington Street.

Just Buffalo Literary Center is proud to sponsor LIT CITY in collaboration with our Literary Corridor partners:
