Neon sign at the famous corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Los Angeles's Hollywood neighborhood. The intersection became famous in the 1920s for its concentration of radio and movie-related businesses. Local farms and orchards became movie backlots. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is centered on the intersection. But most Hollywood" production facilities moved to other parts of town including Burbank and Glendale and the area fell into disrepair and disrepute with many abandoned stores and offices with many abandoned stores and offices and the streets themselves claimed by squatters and panhandlers. It took several decades for redevelopment to take hold and visitors looking for Hollywood dreams were often taken aback by the area's contrast with shinier tourist meccas. Besides the Walk of Fame two of the few nearby vestiges of Hollywood's glory years are the historic Grauman's (now Mann's) Chinese Theatre and the circular Capitol Records Tower.
