The Gould Memorial Library and Hall of Fame are Beaux Arts landmarks designed by the great Stanford White at the turn of the last century. The interior of the library is richly decorated in marble, stone, mosaic, wood and bronze, with Tiffany glass, and features one of the most breathtaking rotundas in the city. The Hall of Fame, wrapped around the back of the library on a bluff overlooking the Harlem River, is a colonnade with busts of noted scientists, writers, politicians and many other important American figures. Part of the undergraduate campus of New York University from 1900-1973, the buildings are now part of the Bronx Community College.

  1. Hi! Do you have to join something or sign up somewhere to visit the TWA terminal? I’m changing my flight back to NYC to land at JFK on the 18th just to see it.

      It’s open access, so you won’t need a reservation. But we would recommend going early to line up, it’s guaranteed to be packed!
