'Liners' live in neighborhoods along Charles Page Boulevard, west of downtown Tulsa. The four lane street used to be the main route between Tulsa and Sand Springs. It's easier these days to take highway 412 to get across town. According to Don Comstock, that's one of the reasons that the neighborhood he grew up in isn't what it once was.
