City Plate - Hollywood
Part of our sixth series of City Plates. The theme of this sixth collection is "American Dreams." Each of the cities in the series (Boston, San Francisco, Hollywood, and Palm Springs) has inspired the spirit of the American dream. Whether it was freedom from religious persecution, the promise of fortune and fame, or the desire for a golden age of leisure that spurred the growth of these four cities, they are all landmarks—historically and architecturally— that represent the persistence of a national ethos full of ambition and optimism. From its inception, Hollywood has projected the image of itself as a place where anything can happen. As a district within the city of Los Angeles, Hollywood encompasses a reservoir, canyons, a municipal park, a freeway, expansive commercial boulevards, quiet residential communities, and massive studio lots. This plate illustrates the idiosyncracies of the region where all things aspirational and gaudy, natural and artificial, converge. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is highlighted with a persimmon dashed line. To the east is a green dashed outline over a portion of the 101 Freeway, indicating the proposed site of Hollywood Central Park.
