“This is were all the weirdos come”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

If you want to do something stupid and run into all the weirdos and maybe a druggie or someone who never had a shower this is the place for you. It is right next to the Tribune Loft where we lived for a short time, Let me say the entire Brady District is not for families and it is not for most folks. Its the kind of place you hear rumors about but never would go to if you want to have fun. Mostly alternative lifestyles and never a family friendly environment! You might find a drunk sleeping on the stone wall or a gang of skateboarders on the sidewalk. Beware of all of Tulsa downtown!

“Stay away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Do not waste your time.
Apparently this site was featured on some television show
a few years ago. Today the area has fallen into disuse
and the location is no longer marked in any way.

“Must see!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

A visit to Tulsa is not complete without a trip to the Center of the Universe. Stand in the middle, shout your name, and try to figure out how the incredible echo is possible. Fun place to stop and take photos.

“A Tulsa Curiosity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Super fun! If you've never been, it's definitely a fun (and free) thing to do in a cool part of downtown. Somehow, speaking through an acoustical anomaly just makes everything better. It's sort of romantic.
