Default Tulsa Brady Arts District

Tulsa Brady Arts District is going to leave it's stamp on DT Tulsa OK

East Brady Street between North Main Street
and North Boston Avenue includes diverse retailers,
such as Glacier Confection and Tulsa Glass Blowing Studio.

But there is another reason for the district’s recent
resurgence.Wallace credits the long-term vision and
fortitude of Brady property owners like Sharp and
others.

I saw the link above mentioned a light rail in Tulsa. Is that really a possibility or just someone's wish? I'm also curious, what is the big draw for downtown Tulsa? I drove through yesterday and saw the new baseball park. It looked very nice. However, on a typical friday or saturday night, why would I want to go downtown?

Light rail would be smart, but I doubt it would happen anytime soon. From what I understand, OKC will have some sort of rail mass transit up and running in 5 years. Tulsa will probably think about playing catch up at that point...*sigh*

Back in the 90's when I lived in Tulsa, downtown was beautiful and well kept, but dead as a doornail after 5pm. From what I've been told, downtown is really coming alive now. It's not quite what OKC has done with there's, but it's also happening more organically.

I just spoke with a close friend a few weeks ago who was telling me about the Brady and Blue Dome Districts and how they are really coming alive now. Lots of bars, clubs, restaurants etc. Can't wait to, check it out!

Is downtown pretty active? Lots of pedestrian traffic so that it feels safe? Really my only experience downtown was for a convention about four years ago and I got hit up for money a few times. I did love the architecture.
