Thread: Not Nostalgia...If Anything, How Far We've Come

    Default Not Nostalgia...If Anything, How Far We've Come

    Aerial view from Feb. 20th, 1995:



    The whole area seems much bigger since then. I think it's funny that Reno had a kink in it to go over the railroad tracks...

    I was hoping to play some 'Where's Waldo' with the image. Silvergrove is right. Google Earth sends out a monthly email letter with a snapshot of some random local place around the world.

    The photo is of the central and eastern portions of Bricktown.

    ppsshh, easy, thats (mainly) NW corner Lincoln and Reno, currently Bass Pro, McDonalds, Hotel, etc. The large block to the west is the Ballpark. It has come a long way, but some of this space is still surprisingly empty.

    Glad I can say that it's mostly good.

    I'll always miss the thriving, vibrant downtown as a shopping mecca and especially during the Xmas season. I'll always miss OKC before white flight.
