Fodor's Review

Stunning wrought-iron railings, ornate plaster moldings, pink marble staircases, a birdcage elevator, and a skylighted atrium that rises almost 50 feet: it's easy to see why the iconic Bradbury Building leaves visitors awestruck. Designed in 1893 by a novice architect who drew his inspiration from a science-fiction story and a conversation with his dead brother via a Ouija board, the office building was originally the site of turn-of-the-20th-century sweatshops, but now

houses a variety of businesses that try to keep normal working conditions despite the barrage of picture-snappers. Blade Runner and Chinatown were filmed here. Visits are limited to the lobby and the first-floor landing.
