OKC has a nice skyline for a city with less than 700000 people.
Especially the new tower is great!

Nice one for OKC. Can someone tell me what those buildings with the lighted crosses are? Very interesting.

why doesn't the little Devon building have a cross? I fear a boycott coming their way.

All, the crosses are just lighting displays that the two building owners do for the Christmas/Holiday season. ...

Similar to how other US cities will light the tops of towers in Green/Red during this time.

Also, to Matsky - while OKC does have a city population less than 700,000 as you stated (it is around 600K now), it does have a metro population over 1,350,000 and it is metro population that most cities worldwide use for comparisons.

Only wanted to note this, that normally we would say OKC has over 1.3m people (instead of central city pop) for worldwide/national comparisons sakes - meaning OKC is a small metro with quite a nice downtown skyline comparatively. In my opinion, OKC finally looks like a city that has a metro pop significantly over 1 million.

Nice shots of Devon but a truck driver, in the left lane, recording the skyline = stupid decision.

Looking south on Harvey Avenue. Great perspective and I love the density of this perspective.
