10 Reasons Verbode Loves Crown Heights

Crown Heights Historic neighborhood is one of Verbode’s favorite places to sell homes. It is filled with tall trees, spacious parks and walking distance to the Western Avenue District. It is a neighborhood that can cover all the bases for someone wanting to live in the urban core. A one stop shop urban family neighborhood.

10 Reasons we Love Crown Heights

10. The Art Murals – In 2014 Western Avenue asked local Artists to add some life to the walls of restaurants and retail locations. Two new murals were also added in 2015, making the area a makeshift museum for daily commuters and shoppers.

Crown Heights

9. The Activities – Crown Heights is infamous for their Halloween crowds. Families from all over come out to trick or treat in a neighborhood who obviously gives out the best treats. The neighborhood also throws a parade, pet show, and picnic during the 4th of July. New to the events is the West Fest on Western Avenue, which includes food trucks and live music.

Crown Heights

8. The Shops – Furniture, antiques, florists, spices, records, and men’s goods. There are so many options for the avid shopper in any family. Grab a vinyl at Guestroom Records, a gift at A Date with Iris, or maybe some spices from Savory Spice.

Crown Heights

7. The Bars – There are few streets in all of the United States that can boast about multiple historic bars. From the Sipango Lounge to VZD’s, and who hasn’t heard about the Cock O-The Walk, there is plenty of space to indulge in the nightlife scene on Western Avenue.

Crown Heights

6. The Restaurants – It is easy to be a glutton in Crown Heights with all of the great food nearby. Iron Star by Good Egg Dining, Sushi Neko by Western Concepts, and The Drum Room by Deep Fork. All great options to fill a family’s plate.

Crown Heights

5. The Trees – It is hard to miss the towering trees that bring shade during the hot summer days. When fall comes, the leaves turn and it is hard not to take a long walk or bike ride up and down the boulevard.

Crown Heights

4. The Styles of Architecture – The most obvious style is Colonial, but there are many other representations of great architecture. Styles like Art Deco, Craftsman, and Prairie.

Crown Heights

3. The Parks – Crown Heights, Douglas, Edgemere Heights, and Guy James parks are all close by. Within minutes, you are amongst beautiful green areas and streams. All parks have playgrounds and walking trails. Great for getting the kids tired and your dogs their exercise.

Crown Heights

2. The Neighborhood Association – In 1973 the Crown Heights-Edgemere Height Homeowners Association was founded to promote fellowship, preservation, and beautification. The Security Association founded in the 1980s provides 24-hour armed patrol and the area enjoys a very low crime rate.

Crown Heights

1. Our Current Listings – Both Joy Baresel and Mary Hatch have listings available in Crown heights. The homes were open this last weekend and will probably be gone soon. Contact them now to get your chance at living it his Historic Gem in the Urban Core of OKC!

Top 10 Districts in Oklahoma City's Urban Core

With a great economy and a growing population, Oklahoma City is seeing the birth of the District. Shopping, Dining, Adventure, Entertainment and Art there is a District for everyone. We compiled a list of our Top 10 Districts, along with a few suggestions. We hope this list will give you the urge to get out of the house and enjoy a District today!

10.

Boathouse District – With a unique architecture the City has seen, this district is for the kid and athlete at heart. Everything from kayaking, rock climbing and flying down a zip line is available here. You will also find from time to time the world’s Olympic athletes. Next week is the Oklahoma Regatta Festival, you do not want to miss this fun time for the whole family! Next for this area, the White Water Riversport Rapids.

9.

Western Avenue – A soon to finish road renovation will open up the sidewalks and make it easier for everyone to find their favorite bar or restaurant. You have your classics like VZD’s to your newbie The Barrel. You can also spice up your life a little with Savory Spice Shop or you could tone it down with a coffee at Lobby Bar. Shops include A Date with IrisWeldon Jack, and Guestroom Records. When they say there is something for everyone, they mean it.

8.

Classen Curve – When thinking about this district, you should always ask, “Do I like shopping?” If the answer is yes, this is your district. With popular national chains like Whole FoodsAnthropologie and West Elm you can bet you will keep with the current trends. It is also quite easy to Keep It Local in Classen Curve. Onion Burgers at Tucker’s. Running shoes at Red Coyote. Kid’s fashion at Uptown Kids. It is basically a shopper’s paradise!

7.

Asian District – This has been a district for many years before we even started calling places a district. It has also been the best place for all things Asian Cuisine. Pho Lien Hoa, Lido and Super Cao Nguyen for those who like to make their own. Everyone has a favorite spot in this District. It is also a great place for sandwich lover’s with Neptune’s SubsLee’s Sandwiches and for the Vegetarians, you can grab a Sloppy Jane with your coffee at The Red Cup.

6.

Deep Deuce District – Once a prominent African American community, this small but significant district was a powerful jazz community and Ralph Waldo Ellison even wrote about it in his book Trading Twelves. Now it is having a rebirth of dining, shopping, and living. You have The Wedge Pizzeria, home to some of the best pizza in the state. There is WSKY Lounge, where you can have a great cigar and just about any whiskey you can think of. You might even run into NBA All-star Kevin Durant. New kids on the block Anchor Down for your corn dog fix and Slaughter’s Hall. If you eat to much, you can always step into Slim Menswear to get measured for a new pair of pants.

5.

Uptown District – the 23rd street was and always will be a street filled with potential. With the Tower Theater being renovated and the Gold Dome soon to find new life, Uptown is quickly becoming the district to start a new local business. You can’t start this conversation without bringing up Cheever’s Cafe. It has been a staple for many years. Now there are many new places that will likely be around for years. GuyutesPizzeria GustoThe DrakeThe Pump Bar, Mutts, Big Truck TacosCuppies & JoeBackdoor BBQBasil and Pizza 23 just to name a few. It seems there is so much now, yet there is so much more to come from this district.

Automobile Alley – Cool shops like Plenty Mercantile and Sara Kate Studios mixed with a great cup of joe at Coffee Slingers, Auto Alley is experiencing a resurgence. Experience fine dining at the Broadway 10 Chop House or Red Prime Steakhouse. Be sure to check it out on the 3rd Thursday every month for Shop Hop. Verbode included!

3.

Midtown District – If you work downtown you are more than likely going to stop in Midtown before heading home. Happy Hour is no joke in Midtown. Newly opened Fassler Hall serves up mini bratwurst with your giant German beer. After that, you can go downstairs and bowl until your hearts content at Dust Bowl. You don’t always have to go after work, if you are an early riser there
is a donut at Brown’s Bakery or a European pastry at Prairie Thunder Baking Company. Don’t forget about the new shops in Midtown like Black ScintillaTrade Men’s Wares and Chirps & Cheers. You are bound to find something to spend your hard earned money on.

2.

Paseo Arts District – It could be argued that the Paseo Arts District was the birthplace of Oklahoma City’s art culture. Lined with 22 art galleries you can find just about any media. The Project Box opened last year as space for artists in all disciplines to share and further their skills through interactive workshops and performances. The Elm’s gallery was one of the first galleries in the area opened in 1920, now JRB Art at the Elm’s it has become one of the most important galleries for any local artist to show their work. The Paseo is also home to very artistically delicious food from Picasso CafePaseo Grill, and Sauced. Best time to see everything and your favorite artists, First Friday art walk.

1.

Plaza District – A couple of years ago there were only a few businesses on a run down the street that was once a hub for business. When Lyric Theatre chose to renovate a building on this street it seemed to cause chain reactions. Businesses started popping up slowly, like No Regrets Tattoo and DNA Galleries. Today as soon as a building comes available, there are many entrepreneurs jumping on the chance to open their ideas on The Plaza. With a mentality of working together and not creating competition, The Plaza District has grown quickly and each new business becomes the new success story. Like Kasum GalleryOut on a Limb and Maverick. If you are hungry, there is plenty to indulge your grumbling belly. The MuleEmpire Slice HouseChiltepe’sOak & OreSaint’s and District House. For dessert there is Roxy’s Ice CreamPie Junkie or you can sip wine at Urban Wineworks. So much to choose from with so little time in the day.
