If you've ever been to Binghamton's Metro-Center, chances are you've strolled along the local "Walk of Fame."
Members of the community, many local businesses and even a fraternity from Binghamton University helped "Spruce up the Sidewalk of Stars." Participants helped pull weeds and polish the stars to make them more visible to those visiting the area. Those who volunteered their time say it's important to clean these monuments so that visitors can see the successes of Binghamton.
"Just to preserve the history of entertainment and arts in Binghamton. That's what we all grow up on and it should be taken better care of," said Barry Blakeslee, local business owner.
Volunteers hope that the city will continue to produce the stars as a symbol to those who have contributed to the community.
