I had always heard Tulsa was very pretty, but I had never really seen it. It looks nice, definately goes against the whole 'oakey' (or whatever way they spell it) stereotype.

The average person would be shocked at how nice those pics are--they probably think everyone in Oklahoma lives in a trailer park. :jippo:

We have the media to thank for that.

^ Most of those pictures are from a distance or off the sidewalk into the sky... dont think you will see many people there .... also the other spots at ground level werent exactly commercial centers LOL....Why is that the first thing people always ask...Unfortunately though most cities all over in the US large and small arent going to have hong kong amounts of people on the streets because they lack the integrated residential/commercial density.

Probably in the Brady District of Downtown. That's where the Cains Ballroom is. They also have the OSU campus there.

Some 5,000 people already live Downtown, but that is one goal... to raise that number to compete more with OKC.

Tulsa looks different from the last time I saw it in 1995. Have new buildings been built there since then? Anyways gotta love it. Home of Alfre Woodard.

New buildings? I think Williams has a new corporate center since then... big glass, blackish kinda, looking tower, to the right of the BOk tower.

Anyway, I am glad some people liked these pictures.

Actually, the newest craze in downtown is to fight to keep buildings from being destroyed. The old Philltower building being converted into condos goes along these lines.

If this person takes pics like I do, then they probably get the desired angle set up, and then wait until cars and people are out of the way, to capture a better pic of the subject. Usually the photog's subject is the architecture, not candid shots of unwitting people.

The pics are great. Yes, OK gets really misunderstood... people, like me thought that OK was still a state for Indians (beside OK city and Tulsa). I was wrong..

Rural OK is also impressive. Bartlesville has Frank Lloyd Wright's only skyscraper and Lawton will have the nation's highest work force per capita when Bush signs the BRAC.

Wow, "Tulsa", which I've only heard of maybe two or three times, looks bigger than I would have thought.

I wouldn't say the skyline is big, and it's definitely not big for a city of 1 million when you compare it to cities like Calgary, Charlotte, Edmonton etc. I would have figured it was a city of maybe 100 000-200 000 people but the skyline shows it's obviously more of a city!
