Would you even be able to tell what state Oklahoma City is in if it weren't for your rude awakening?

Not to sound harsh, but I'm just saying, that might not be much of a loss. Aside from the downtown bombing, I doubt people in Seattle knew anything about OKC. Most people probably thought it was the size of Amarillo..which is 1/8th the real size of OKC.

No one ever would have guessed OKC was an important enough and large enough city to compete for an NBA franchise.

Emerging medical district skyline:



Devon Tower will break ground this summer, so in 3 years the skyline will look more like this:

Kind of hazy, but it shows the NW business district skyline, Lake Hefner, with downtown behind... From WAY out in the country.

but even that pic did not capture all of the skyscrapers, as it misses 50 Penn Place and Valliant Bank monster tower in the NW Business District.

But yes, OKC is quite impressive when you consider the full 2 skylines; befitting of a 1.3M metro area.

It's also missing the state capitol complex and the medical complex highrises!
