Iconic? - Yes, A Must See? - Uh I don't know. Very old and dirty. Sidewalks are very small and usually very crowded so difficult to get good pictures of the stars. Plus, they have street vendors lined up on some of the sidewalks making it even more difficult. Good to say I have been there and saw it but not sure I would spend any good amount of time there.
