Weekday Urban Sketcher at the Hall of Fame for Great Americans
In this crazy political season when one candidate wants to "Make America Great...Again"...let's celebrate those people who made America great in the first place. On the campus of Bronx Community College is the Hall of Fame for Great Americans, the original Hall of Fame. Built in 1900 on what was then NYU's uptown campus, it was founded to honor prominent Americans who have had significant impact on this country's development.
With 98 busts of honorees from all walks of life, classic academic architecture and commanding views of the Harlem River and Manhattan, we should have plenty to keep us busy.
