Bricks Hit Broadway!

As I thought, the earthquake was quite a few miles away (in the Chino Hills) and there seems to be no real damage Downtown other than a few bricks coming off a building two doors south of the Bradbury Building. They appear to be bricks that were either disturbed or replaced after the top two floors of the building were demolished for seismic reasons, which is ironic; because no bricks would have likely fallen off the building if the upper floor hadn't been removed.

This particular building has some local historic significance since it was home of the dress shop of the mother of local real estate tycoon - Richard Muerelo - and it was the first building acquired by the family.

A few falling brinks hitting someone in the head is enough to kill them.
