august 29

A view from Boston Avenue, Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The historic 1922 Atlas Life building opened this summer as a Marriott Courtyard. The four-story vertical neon sign, which was installed on the Boston Avenue exterior in 1946, was built by Claude Neon Federal.

At the end of this street view is the BOK Tower, a 52-story skyscrapper, built in 1975 and designed by Minoru Yamasaki & Associates, the same architect who designed the World Trade Center in New York. This structure is very similar to the WTC towers in appearance and construction.
