2. CUNY Bronx Community College: Gould Memorial Library and Hall of Fame for Great Americans

The Gould Memorial Library and Hall of Fame are Beaux Arts Landmarks designed by Stanford White in the late 1890s. These structures were part of the undergraduate campus of New York University from 1900-1973. The site is now the campus for Bronx Community College. The library and Hall of Fame were designated City Landmarks in 1966, with the library interior following in 1981. The interior of the library is richly decorated in marble, stone, mosaic, wood and bronze and features Tiffany glass. The Hall of Fame is a colonnade with busts of noted scientists, writers, politicians and many other important American figures.

 

Ongoing 20-minute tours will run from 1pm until 4pm on Sunday, October 20th with Lisa Easton of Easton Architects, LLP; Graham Roscoe of Beyer Blinder Belle Architects; Richard W. Southwick of Beyer Blinder Belle Architects; and others.
