The question about the Hall of Fame is incorrect. Technically speaking, it is in Concord, just outside of Charlotte. Now although Concord is part of the Charlotte Metro area, in the description you describe Charlotte as the 15th biggest city in America (that needs to be updated), meaning you are referring to the city proper population, not the metro area.

I appreciate the feedback and I'm happy to make corrections, but I have to stand by my answers.

The hall of fame is at 400 E Martin Luther King Blvd. in Uptown Charlotte and the U.S. Census Bureau confirms that Charlotte is the 15th largest city in the U.S.
