If you’ve watched Pretty Woman, you will definitely recognize Hollywood Boulevard and the Walk of Fame, as the place where Julia Roberts’ character Vivian, dressed in patent-leather OTK boots runs her “business”. Since Pretty Woman, Hollywood Boulevard has got a much needed face lift and new constructions including the impressive Hollywood & Highland, has helped Hollywood regain some of its original glory.
Last night Trine and I went out for a walk in the area. We wanted to catch a glimpse of the Hollywood sign from Hollywood & Highland, but we came a little too late. The sign isn’t lit at night, so it was too dark to see anything. Instead we went continued down Hollywood Boulevard.
I was looking for Jay-Z’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but guess what? He doesn’t have a star! Isn’t that ridiculous? If anyone deserves a star, it’s Jay-Z.
At night, an odd mix of tourists, homeless people and superheroes gathers at Hollywood Walk of Fame. We spotted a Ninja Turtle and Batman, while we were there, but I think Spiderman took a day off. Hollywood Boulevard around Grauman’s Chinese Theatre and Hollywood & Highland is always busy and feels very safe, while the less busy part of the boulevard further east can feel a bit gloomy and desolate after dark.
