A-Z Challenge – HALL of FAME for GREAT AMERICANS

H is today’s A-Z Challenge letter. Here is another landmark and area of interest that I knew nothing about until I started this challenge. I’m going to make it a point to visit the next time I go to the Bronx.  The things I’ve missed out on. Sheesh! My borough has a Hall of Fame for Great Americans on the campus of Bronx Community College. It used to be part of NYU’s University Heights campus, but because the University was in severe financial distress, they sold it to CUNY in 1973.

Technically, the Hall isn’t a hall; it’s a 630 foot outdoor gallery that half-encircles the college’s library and displays 38 bronze sculptured busts of famous and influential people from our past.

    • Sorry it took a while to respond to your comment. I had to fish it out of my spam folder! Thanks for the visit and comment. I’ll be sure to pass by soon. Have a great night. Eva

    • Lol, GMD you’re too funny! I don’t think this Lily Eva Blake person will show up as any famous person though. She’s just the alter ego of some lady who loves and is loved by her Dragon Fellowship. 😀 I love you!!! Xoxoxo

    • I like it too, Alex. My godson goes to BCC where the Hall is. Next time I go visit, I’ll ask him to give me the tour. Lisa’s Minions are awesome. 🙂

    • Nice! I loved Lucille Ball! I was addicted to I Love Lucy as a kid. Sometimes I’ll still watch re-runs if I can. Thanks for the visit and comment; I’ll make sure to scoot over again when I have a minute. Hugs. Eva

    • I’m sure there are. I didn’t even know what gems were in my own hometown until I searched. I understand the Hall has gone through renovations as well.
      Thanks for the visit and I’ll make sure to pop in again soon. Eva

  1. Nope, didn’t know about this! The US is filled with so many tiny gems like this. One of the few TV shows I enjoy is Mysteries At the Museum, which spotlights interesting artifacts from museums all over the country, and the stories behind them.
