  • Bust are not very diverse. There's a few black Americans, 1-2 women, no native Americans nor Hispanics. Mainly old white men including those who fought in the Confederate army. I thought the Confederate army was the enemy and lost. Strange how the losers got a bust. The area looks beautiful nevertheless. A little walkthru with a loved one for educational purposes is a nice touch. Many movies and TV shows have filmed there. To gain access to the hall you must show valid ID to get onto campus. Campus is public but you must have permission if you are not a BCC student. Hall of Fame is located within the Bronx community college campus. Adjacent to the new library and curves around three campus buildings philosophy Hall, Gould memorial and language hall.
  • There are many busts of influential people whom have influenced this nation not all are well known but they each had something worth contributing

Where to stay in Bronx

The Bronx is home to a number of mid-range hotels, bed and breakfasts, and inns. As is the case anywhere in the city, eager sightseers should look for something close to a subway station for easy access to the city’s many attractions. However, you should be aware that these areas often get busy and noisy in the morning with commuters. A vacation rental provides a home away from home and plenty of amenities, and many are located in residential neighborhoods that will help you get off the tourist trail.
