The Bronx, New York City 


Bronx Walk of Fame

Most would have heard of the Hollywood Walk of Fame but New York City has its own Bronx Walk of Fame, located along the famous Grand Concourse starting at East 161st. The borough’s Walk of Fame honors well-known men and women from the Bronx, in recognition for their exceptional achievements. Honored inductees have their names written on a plaque and placed on the Grand Concourse, which is the highest honor bestowed on a resident or former resident of the Bronx.
