Ray Bradbury Square

New, 9 comments

The intersection of Fifth and Flower Streets Downtown is now Ray Bradbury Square, per a City Council vote today. Bradbury, who wrote Fahrenheit 451 and hoped to crisscross Los Angeles with monorails, "'drew from the rich milieu of characters populating Los Angeles to fill the fantastic, imagined worlds of his literature,' ate at Clifton's Cafeteria on Broadway and wrote on public typewriters in the Central Library, according to the motion." Bradbury died in June. [LADN, previously]
