The Bronx Community College sits on top of the highest point in the borough. The campus was designed in 1900 by renowned architect Stanford White. The campus is rich in neoclassical architecture and five of its buildings now have landmark status. BCC's President Carole Joseph advocated for the designation when she was appointed in 2011. She said these sites deserve landmark designation.
"This is a big deal because these buildings are very old and very beautiful," said Joseph. "We want to preserve the architecture of that time."
