Vine Street

Vine Street north of Hollywood Boulevard

Vine Street is a street in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California that runs north-south from Melrose Avenue up past Hollywood Boulevard. The intersection of Hollywood and Vine was once a symbol of Hollywood itself. The famed intersection fell into disrepair during the 1970s but has since begun gentrification and renewal with several high valued projects currently in progress. Three blocks of the Hollywood Walk of Fame lie along this street with names such as John Lennon, Johnny Carson, and Deborah Kerr. Vine Street continues for one block as a residential street in Torrance, renamed as Vine Avenue. However, it is a strictly residential street which terminates at Sepulveda Boulevard in Torrance. South of Melrose, Vine turns into Rossmore Avenue, a residential Hancock Park thoroughfare that ends at Wilshire Boulevard.

Buildings

The Capitol Records Building, Capitol Tower, is located just north of the intersection of Hollywood & Vine.[1] Miss Brewster's Millions (1926) starring Bebe Daniels, was shot on Vine Street at Franklin Avenue, near the site what is now the Capitol Records Building.[2] The Hollywood/Vine Station for the Metro Red Line serves the intersection with the station entrance located at Hollywood Boulevard and Argyle Avenue, located one block east. Metro Local line 210 serves Vine Street.
