Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is the sidewalk along Hollywood Boulevard[?] in Hollywood, California, which is embedded with over 2000 bronze stars featuring the names of celebrities from film and television. The Walk of Fame runs north to south on Hollywood Blvd. from Gower[?] to La Brea[?], and east to west on Vine Street[?] between Yucca and Sunset Boulevard.

Created in 1958, the Walk of Fame has become a tribute to artists working within the entertainment industry, both in front and behind the cameras. Honorees receive a star based on career achievements, as well as their charitable and civic contributions. Joanne Woodward received the first star on the Walk of Fame on February 9, 1960.
