I grew up in the Bronx (Marble Hill) but haven't lived there in years, although I do live in NYC. I've been thinking recently of visiting the original Hall of Fame on the old NYU-Bronx Community campus. Is the area safe? It certainly wasn't the last time I was around there, around 1993.

I visited last year -- walked from High Bridge up University Av. Didn't seem particularly dangerous in the daytime -- lots of people out and about. Not the poshest neighborhood of course. Plenty of poverty to go around. Heavily Latino neighborhood, if that makes any differencio to you. Do go. And check out the other notable architecture of the campus. Besides the classic library and classroom buildings of Stanford White, there are the weird, wacky, and wonderful Marcel Breuer structures, and the fabulous new Robert A.M. Stern library.
