LA Names Intersection After Bradbury

The intersection of Fifth and Flower streets in Downtown Los Angeles will be renamed Ray Bradbury Square, thanks to a vote by the City Council on Tuesday. Bradbury was known to frequent nearby Clifton’s Cafeteria, and had written on the public typewriters in the Central Library, where he also spent several days a week reading everything he could, according to his daughter. The motion was introduced by councilman Jose Huizar, who said Bradbury had been “part of the fabric of the city of L.A.”
