Odd fact about names of Tulsa streets

Streets west of Main (toward the Arkansas River) are named after cities west of the Mississippie, eg Boulder, Denver

Streets east of Main are named after cities east of the Mississippi, eg Boston, Cincinnati, Detroit

Gets bit messed up close to the Arkansas and in the area around the arena/federal and city govt buildings

ETA---named streets run north and south.

Streets running east and west are numbered. Admiral north of downtown was the line between north and south Tulsa. There are major streets every mile. There's Admiral, then 11th (old route 66), then 21st(goes by the Fairgrounds) and 21st between Lewis and Utica on north side of Utica Square (IIRC the oldest open air mall in the country), 71st and Memorial a major commercial center with the major Woodlan Hills Mall and many box stores, 81st and Lewis is on the southwest corner of ORU
