Pretty much in that area. It was all torn out when I-44 went through, or before. The Patio was right on the circle. There is an about 6 or 8 story office building there that used to be called the Circle Building but it has another name now. I would guess that the circle was right where the stoplights are now to turn onto NW highway from Classen. Everything looks different now.

No, nothing could be as stupid as the onside kick call. I do feel a little ancient now.

I like your shot of Leadership Square. Those people ice skating look like they are having fun.

Thanks Peggy. Its hard to capture Leadership Square. I dont think many even know it has two towers. It was originally designed to be a 60 story structure...

"In stark contrast to the promise from Urban Renewal, Downtown had not seen a new skyscraper or any sort of major construction project for many years. The last major skyscraper built downtown was the First Oklahoma Tower in 1982 and the Leadership Square complex built in 1984. Leadership Square was originally intended to be a single 60+ floor signature skyscraper but was later scaled down to two 'twin-towers' due to the economic downturn. No one knew whether downtown would turn around and it was used only for office space for quite some time, with the suburban developments left with the life and energy downtown once commanded."

I had about 5 minutes of fun on the ice....Those skates really start to hurt after 10 mins or so.

Wear thicker socks next time or wear two pairs, and get your skates a little bigger.

I like to see downtown full of life now.

Thanks so much for all the gorgeous, interesting photos from everyone who takes them and spends time posting them on this forum! They are truly enjoyable and appreciated. For those of us who haven't been there yet to visit, your pictures help us get a "real" feel for the area better than any glossy brochure could. There seems to be such a rich variety of homes and building architecture to be seen in Oklahoma, which I love. And pictures of the outdoors and wildlife are wonderful as well. I enjoy simple things, and don't need big fancy amenities to be happy. I feel that I could spend all my spare time there just taking day trips and never need to leave the state to find something interesting to see and do.

There is a great variety here in OK. Something for everyone and every taste. Now that you mention it, there are so many day trip possibilities in OK that it is really hard to go to them all even in a decade. I have a long list of places I want to see again.

My next pics will probably be NH Plaza and Western Ave since NH Plaza will no longer exist (sigh) and will turn into McClendonville. I am sure the "new" plaza will be way better but it kills off two institutions...Crescent Market and NH Drug (Oldest grocery store in the state and one of the only Drug/soda fountains in Oklahoma).
