« back to classes page
Monuments to some of the Nation’s greatest statesmen, composers, authors, military leaders, performers, scientists, educators and business leaders are in The Bronx. First stop is a visit to the Hall of Fame for Great Americans where almost 100 of them are enshrined with busts by renowned sculptors Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Daniel Chester French, Anna Hyatt Huntington and others. We’ll stop for a delicious lunch at Emilia’s Restaurant in Bronx’s vibrant little Italy (included).  Next we’ll take a guided tour of Woodlawn Cemetery, established in 1863, and final resting place for some of America’s most famous names from the fields of entertainment, art, literature and industry.  See monuments to luminaries Admiral David Farragut, Irving Berlin, Duke Ellington, F.W. Woolworth and others in this beautifully landscaped 400 acre park-like cemetery.  Tour led by Lloyd Ultan, Bronx Borough Historian, author and lecturer. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
