I work in downtown Tulsa and most lunch times you can find me roaming downtown, carrying my camera seeing what there is to see. After 27 years of doing that, I still see new stuff. Anway, Tulsa Community College’s downtown campus has a building with a platform overlooking Boston Avenue in downtown Tulsa.
I’ve tried to get up there several times and only once has the door been open but I had only had my iphone so I did what I could with what I had. This time I had my new Fujifilm point and shoot so what the heck, I’ll see if I can get up there. Plus the blue chair on the platform gave me a little hope. I know the route pretty well now, take the elevator to the third floor, and go right through the door to the stairwell and guess what!!
And the mostly locked door opened. Yeah for me. There were some people in the classroom to the right but I decided to just ignore them.
So here is the view to the northwest. Holy Family Cathedral.
And straight north up Boston Avenue, the heart of downtown.
And straight south along Boston Avenue.
That is Boston Avenue Church. An art-deco treasure.
Just so you know, I didn’t pass any “No Trespassing”, “Students and Staff Only,” visitors please check in or any other blah blah blah signs during my little venture up to what the school calls the “Ninth Street Overlook.”
Have you shot any outlaw photos?
