Appreciate Fine Architecture At The Bradbury Building
By Nicole Cormier
When visiting Los Angeles from out of town, there are a few must-see tourist locations. Most are obvious, like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the Hollywood sign or Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Other must-see spots may not be as iconic, but are definitely worth seeing when visiting the area.
The Bradbury Building located in the Bunker Hill area (304 S. Broadway) is a 19th century building that was way ahead of its time. It was built to accentuate natural light by incorporating an overhead dome and many windows. The building was commissioned by Louis L. Bradbury, hence the name, and was designed by George Wyman. As with most of LA’s fine architecture, the Bradbury Building has been featured in many movies and television shows. The beautiful interior is worth going out of your way to see, as the cast iron and brink masonry make for an old-style ambiance.
When you’re in Los Angeles there is no better way to see the city than a walking tour. The Bradbury Building is part of several, or you can make your own itinerary. But when you’re getting to Bunker Hill, be sure to drive a vehicle that will express your refined taste like a 2013 CL63 AMG Coupe from Mercedes-Benz of Encino.
