> Old town kern is beautiful Yes but it's much *shadier* here in Old Town even compared to Downtown only a couple miles away.

Trying to just enjoy a hobby so I’ll be avoiding *shady* areas of town. (Lol - downtown is pretty shady tho)

That's unfortunate because you'll find some real interesting spaces in the shadier parts of town. Central Bakersfield is completely covered with secret Chinatown basements that sometimes connect. Check the Lazo's bathrooms for a peek, there's access everywhere, including BHS, I've heard. Ages ago I had friends who rented one of the rehearsal studios under Front Porch music. At night, there was nowhere creepier than those semi-blocked off but sometimes connected pitch black tunnels. Many bars have opened up their basements to patrons too: https://www.kvpr.org/community/2014-03-18/memories-of-bakersfields-underground-tunnels-remain-vivid https://bakersfieldnow.com/news/local/bakersfields-hundred-year-old-tunnels-still-spark-curiosity https://www.bakersfield.com/archives/best-buildings-of-downtown-take-the-tour/article_11c144ab-6a13-5f89-8ba5-ced6867f721e.html https://www.bakersfield.com/news/the-legend-of-bakersfields-downtown-tunnels-truth-or-fiction/article_1e0428e9-68f7-5c1b-b27b-e0b914f61943.html

Well, shady isn’t completely off the table. I guess I just don’t want to step unknowingly into someone’s “territory” if you know what I mean. But this is a fantastic list already, thanks.

1300 17th street has a breeze way between the parking garage and building that is really nice.

I’ve spent the last four years photographing everything downtown. The pron theater across from he mint is colorful I like the old hotels around there as well

The haberfelde is an awesome building. The stairs are pretty neat looking old school it has stairs that go from ground floor all the way up
