These are sidewalks along 15 blocks of Hollywood Boulevard and three blocks of Vine Street in Hollywood, California. The sidewalks are embedded with more than 2,600 five-pointed stars featuring the names of celebrities honored by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for their contributions to the entertainment industry.
The Kinks’ song “Celluloid Heroes” is about Hollywood Boulevard and the personalities engraved therein. A number of Hollywood landmarks are referred to in the song.
The Walk of Fame runs east to west on Hollywood Boulevard from Gower Street to La Brea Avenue, and north to south on Vine Street between Yucca Street and Sunset Boulevard.
Each star consists of a terrazzo comprising a pink five-pointed star rimmed with bronze and inlaid into a charcoal square.
