  • This is the 1st Hall of Fame in history. In the most randomest place, a community college. It is well maintained. A nice place to visit in the Bronx. Show your ID at the gate, sign in and enjoy the great architecture on the campus.
  • 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.
  • Very interesting just found it pointless but it's a very nice place to sit and relax and maybe do some work
  • There are many busts of influential people whom have influenced this nation not all are well known but they each had something worth contributing
  • Lot of history great place to go
