11. Shakespeare Bust at the Abandoned Public School 31 in the Bronx

Public School 31 in the Bronx, once known as the “Castle on the Concourse,” was designed by C. B. J. Snyder in 1899. The landmarked building has been abandoned by the City and been left to rot. One of the few architectural remnants still visible is a bust of Williams Shakespeare, but the building was slated for demolition as of 2015.
