This past summer, a well-known Downtown character by the name of Rickey "The Pirate" Taylor passed away. He was an Art Walk regular and Skid Row resident who, though not without his demons, was much beloved and is truly missed by a lot of the people who got to know him in the neighborhood over the years. This good, long read goes into Taylor's background and the origins of DTLA's most famous pirate. [LAist]
