What is it like on the southside of Oklahoma CIty?

April 25, 2012 | 0 Comments

In the southern inner city area of OKC, early 20th century architecture and flair are on display in Stockyards City. Gaslights, wooden storefronts, western wear shops and the Oklahoma-National Stockyards can be found here. In addition to the cowboy spirit, one element that adds to the eclectic mix of people in Oklahoma City is its large Hispanic population. Capitol Hill, in South OKC, is the heart of Hispanic oriented commerce, culture and nightlife.

Capitol Hill was initially a nice, middle class suburb, but when residents began to move to the outer suburbs, the neighborhood went with them. Gang activity increased and crime went up. But things have turned around and now this South OKC neighborhood is lively and growing. The South OKC Chamber of Commerce was formed to make a concerted effort to revitalize this area and draw both residents and businesses to this promising area.

Residents of South OKC apartments can venture to the business district, which is primarily Hispanic, and find an interesting array of soccer shops, recording studios and taquerias. Apartments here are pretty inexpensive, with one-bedroom units costing under in the mid $300’s and two-bedroom units costing around $420.
