Notes on the Geography of Oklahoma: Oklahoma City Eastside: Photo 59
Slowly, private investment is coming into this manmade desert. Here are the Deep Deuce Apartments, 294 apartments built in 2001 and sold for $15,000,000 by the Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority to Arbors of Bricktown, a partnership from Memphis, Tennessee. In 2006 the complex was for sale again, this time for $28 million. These two blocks were the heart of Deep Deuce, the cultural center of Oklahoma City's black community from the 1920s through the '40s. The Aldrich Theater stood on the near side of the corner in this picture, while kitty-corner from it was the Musicians Exchange. One important leftover from that period is Calvary Baptist Church, still visible in the distance here.
