As we mentioned in this morning's news roundup, the grand finale of Bronx Week took place yesterday, and four successful Bronx natives were honored by BP Ruben Diaz, Jr., with spots on the borough's walk of fame.

This year's inductees: actress Joy Bryant of the NBC sitcom “Parenthood;” singer and actress Irene Cara, best-known for starring in the 80s hit film “Fame;” Charles Latibeaudiere, a producer for the celebrity gossip show TMZ; Chazz Palminteri, an actor who wrote and starred in “A Bronx Tale.”

Street placards bearing the names of the four new honorees, posted along the Grand Concourse, were unveiled yesterday before the big annual Bronx Week Parade.
