Characterized by its ornate ironworks, open-access stairs, walkways, and elevators, it’s worth photographing inside and outside.

The entrance to the building is on Broadway Street, between a Subway and Blue Bottle Coffee. The Bradbury looks unsuspicious from the outside and is often overlooked. Walk into the building to acquaint yourself and find this view.
