Ray Bradbury became even more a part of Los Angeles culture today, as the City Council voted to name the intersection of Fifth and Flower Streets in downtown Ray Bradbury Square, reports the Daily News.

Bradbury's daughter, Susan Nixon, was on hand for the vote and said that her dad, who spent long afternoons at the Central Library, would be honored by the naming.

"He loved this city so much," she said.

The idea to name the intersection after the "Farenheit 451" writer came from Councilman Jose Huizar.
