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. 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, with Tiffany glass. The Hall of Fame is a colonnade with busts of noted scientists, writers, politicians and many other important American figures.
