Letter from the Founder

“Start spreading the news...”

Having lived and worked in Hollywood for most of my film and television career, I was fortunate to have been one of the first stars to receive a STAR on the HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME.

Since New York has been my home for over 30 years, and since New York City is the Entertainment Capital of the World, it occurred to me that we, too, should have a “WALK OF FAME” displaying our stars and legends in the world of Theater, Motion Pictures, Television, Music and Dance.  To this end, we have created a New York not-for-profit foundation called THE BROADWAY WALK OF STARS FOUNDATION, INC.  It has received tax-exempt status and we are moving ahead quickly.

We will be placing especially designed star squares with the name of the artist and his or her affiliation at intervals in the public sidewalk, forming a ribbon of stars.  The proposed BROADWAY WALK OF STARS will begin at 47th Street and Broadway in Times Square and continue down both sides of the street to 42nd Street, then branch out from there.

We have formed an illustrious Board of Advisors who will be consulted as we select the stars and legends to represent the five above-mentioned disciplines.

If you are as enthusiastic as we are about this long-overdue tribute to the legends who have made Broadway what it is today, we would appreciate your support.  Read our mission statement to learn more about our purpose, goals, and dedication to the stars we honor.
