Pawtucket, Rhode Island: Hollywood Walk of Fame

Either the saddest or most optimistic Hollywood Walk of Fame. Created in July 1995 when three actors and the director of the film American Buffalo, with scenes shot locally, placed their hand prints and signatures in a Pawtucket sidewalk. The Walk lacked new celebrities until 2014, when Woody Allen must have stumbled into conveniently wet cement.

3 Exchange St., Pawtucket, RI
Downtown, at the complicated intersection of Goff Ave., Summer St., Exchange St., and Broad St./Hwy 114. The Walk of Fame is on the south side of this intersection, in the sidewalk.

Woody Allen hand prints.

Hollywood Walk of Fame

The Pawtucket Walk of Fame was (somewhat) rejuvenated in 2014 by the addition of Woody Allen, who was filming in Rhode Island at the time. There are empty squares for future hand prints near his, so Pawtucket may be hopeful that it will be touched by Hollywood again in the future (officials were hoping the stars of Allen's movie, Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix, would also add their hand prints and those blank spots, but that didn't happen).
