The Neighborhood

The Bronx is home to many cultural experiences, recreation activities, and it boasts an extraordinary global restaurant scene.  

Our museum is located on the Grand Concourse, a major thoroughfare originally inspired by the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris. The Grand Concourse boasts some of the most beautiful art-deco buildings and showcases the Bronx Walk of Fame that spans  23 blocks along the corridor and honors Bronx legends such as actress Rita Moreno, rapper KRS-One, and author Mary Higgins Clark.  Yankee Stadium, home of the “Bronx Bombers”and Major League Soccer’s New York City Football Club, is a short walk from the museum on E. 153rd Street.
