Head downtown to see Bradbury Building and star in your own film noir. Originally designed by Sumner Hunt, Bradbury Building has been standing tall since 1893 when a millionaire businessman Lewis L. Bradbury commissioned it from George Wyman. Added to the list of the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission, the building played a starring role in many music videos of artists like Janet Jackson and Genesis, as well as various films. Take a stroll through the structure to admire the Romanesque style that rules the decor--including an interior central court--or ride the open-cage elevators for a unique experience.

Pretty cool old building in an interesting architectural style. I want able to see anything other than the ground floor as the rest was closed off to visitors. Across the road from the central market so easy to just pop in and have a look while you're there.
This was by far my favorite building I visited while in LA. The architecture is absolutely stunning. It is easily located and not overcrowded. The staircases alone were so beautiful I could have stayed all day just to observe every inch of the place. I would definitely like to go back and spend more time here.
