Hall of Fame for Great Americans
Almost everyone is familiar with famous American historical figures like John Adams, Eli Whitney, and Edgar Allan Poe. But did you know that you can visit a landmark that celebrates these men as well as almost 100 other of the greatest Americans in history? Located just 15 minutes from the Edge Hotel, The Hall of Fame for Great Americans at Bronx Community College celebrates the contributions of these amazing Americans. The highlight of the Hall of Fame is the 630-foot open-air Colonnade that contains bronze busts of each honoree which were all crafted by some of the finest sculptors available. Self-guided tours are free to the public, though donations are encouraged. As a result, The Hall of Fame for Great Americans is the perfect place to spend a leisurely afternoon wandering among the busts of some of the greatest people this country has produced. Once you have satisfied your historical curiosity, head back to the Edge Hotel to refresh before a fun evening out on the town.
