Oklahoma City - Downtown

Oklahoma City is the 27th largest city in the United States by population (644,000) and is the largest city of the Oklahoma City-Shawnee Combined Statistical Area (1,460,000) in Oklahoma.

This thread will focus on a variety of features in Downtown Oklahoma City, although it is not a comprehensive tour. I am including smaller scale buildings from the Automobile Alley which lies adjacent to the North of downtown.

Some historic highlights from the Automobile Alley area:

Thanks for bringing back memories of some of the sites I recall seeing on my visit to OKC.

The architecture is solid and those public spaces are cool, too. It's hard for me to hate on OKC.

I got a speeding ticket on my Bicycle in OKC. I had a Massachusetts License so they took me to jail until I could secure bond (pay the fine). $250. I raced the next day and kicked ass. Won the race and all the preems. I broke the speed limit pretty much the whole race route just for good measure.

Very cool! I'd love to get out there at some point. Seems like there's a lot of nice art deco buildings around downtown. I had no idea that Oklahoma City is in a county also called Oklahoma until I saw your photos of the courthouse. Interestingly redundant.
