AUTOMOBILE ALLEY: SMALL, HIP AND TRENDY
February 4, 2019
Continuing with the second installment of our series on the various districts around Oklahoma City, this week we’re focusing on Automobile Alley. Located along Broadway Avenue, north of downtown, Automobile Alley got its name by originally housing Oklahoma City’s early car dealerships and other automobile-related businesses. Neon signs touting the names of car manufacturers hang from the district’s original buildings to celebrate the area’s heritage.
