Visitor Tips and News About Sonic Center of the Universe
The Center of the Universe is a phenomenon located on the old Main Street bridge over the rail line. If you stand in the center of the brick circle, you hear the echo of your voice. If you stand on the opposite side of the bridge circle from someone else, you hear their echo, but not your own. There is not a manhole cover here. This is included as "just a neat little spot" on the Tulsa Ghost tours provided by the Paranormal Investigation Team of Tulsa (P.I.T.T.).[Cory Gage, 06/27/2004]
It is on a pedestrian bridge, and is in fact a manhole cover -- why anyone would want to put a manhole on a bridge is beyond me. When you stand on it and talk you hear a loud reverberating echo coming from beneath you (quite a spooky experience). The site is quite popular with the locals, especially about 2:30 in the morning after the Cain's has let out for the night.[Zoran Vedek, 07/01/2001]
On a pedestrian bridge in downtown Tulsa, there is what the locals call the Center of the Universe. If you stand in a specific spot and speak, your voice is amplified and it echoes. I'm told it has something to do with the surrounding buildings. I would like to know where it is so that I can go there and let the Universe revolve around ME![KDLaster, 06/11/2000]
