  • Interesting, but a bit of running the place, which is located in a disadvantaged area. In principle, the building itself in the best traditions. Visit worth it.

  • This is a good introduction to famous Americans that would be an excellent experience for new immigrants or children up to teen age. 
  • We had a guided tour of the Hall of Fame as well as the old NYU library which was also designed by Stanford White and the new library designed by Robert Stern. Our guide was most knowledgeable about t...  more »

  • This entire campus is fantastic. One look and you know it was not built as a community college. (See Bronx Community College). The walk is a stroll through American history and thought. Great scholars, generals, doctors, nurses look out at you and descriptive plaques tell you what they did. A must see in the Bronx.
  • A forgotten part of history. This is the original, first hall of fame. Baseball, music, ect were mere followers. Busts of great Americans. Some you know, some forgotten to history and requiring further research overlooking a view of some upper Bronx and Manhattan and the Harlem River. On a campus (once NYU) with buildings like the magnificent, circular Gould Library that would be a major tourist attraction of it was in lower Manhattan instead of The Bronx. Well worth a visit.
  • Its memorial for important people of bronx community college
  • I grew up on W 181st St in the 50s. I am glad to see that this monument to great Americans is still there and not yet removed by the Winston Smiths in the current government.
  • Somewhere in the recesses of my brain, I knew this hidden gem existed.- As a Bronx kid born and raised, I am sad to say that, I just visited the site for the first time. An extraordinary monument celebrating American genius. A country that many would say has flaws and faces many challenges, nevertheless, this historical site reminds us of the the better angels in the soul of a great nation. Let's do all we can to preserve and improve it. I will be back to visit it again.
