Oklahoma City is hiding a luxurious little secret. Apparently, there are apartments amid the high-rises that will drop your jaw. Like seeing something straight out of NYC in our own backyard.
It's probably a direct result of believing everything we see on TV, but when I read the words "New York City Style Apartment," this is what I envision.
While it's a little older than myself, I could also see this being the first image to pop into someone's mind on the same topic...
If you don't recognize any of that, you're not alone. You're also probably relatively young, so your vision of a NYC apartment might be more along the lines of those tiny apartments the Big Apple is so famous for...
...but New York City luxury has found a home here in the Heartland.
In the middle of Downtown Oklahoma City, there is a listing for an apartment so wildly spectacular, even you have to admit you likely didn't realize our state got so fancy from time to time.
Offering a solid mix of upscale modernity and down-home class, it makes you wonder what sort of Okie lives here.

Downtown Oklahoma City might be the last place you'd expect to find luxury beyond a night or two at the Skirvin Hotel, but there are some shockingly fancy and plush apartments available in our state capital city.
Case and point, 131 Park Avenue. A 5,254 square foot, 3-bedroom, 5-bath penthouse apartment on the market for $2.5million. Not only does it come with nearly a century of history, but there's also a garage space, elevator service, and sweeping views of Downtown OKC.
From the outside looking in, it looks very well put together tying ultra-modern styling with classic heartland trends. Lots of glass, lots of warm wood. If you can swing a $16,000 mortgage payment, this could be your next Oklahoma home.
Don't shoot the messenger. I'm not calling these places snobby, the internet is. A recent report by Roadsnacks.net identified 10 of the snobbiest towns and cities in Oklahoma. The methodology behind the study used median household incomes, the percentage of the population with college educations, and median home prices in determining just how snobby a town or city is. Most would agree with the results below. Unless you live in one of these places, then you may disagree. Also, keep in mind this list was all done in good fun. Sure there's some truth to the findings but like most places, you'll find both good and bad. Keep scrolling to check out Oklahoma's top 10 snobbiest towns and cities to see if your hometown made the list.
Oklahoma spends quite a bit of time talking about why we don't like everywhere else. Like Sooner fans and people in Southern OK talk trash on Texas, Northern OK hates Kansas, Eastern OK isn't fond of Arkansas, etc... but what about our own state?
I ran across a dead thread on liberal Facebook--AKA--Reddit where people were talking in detail trying to rank the worst cities in the state. While you may not agree politically with your fellow statesmen, you really can't defend a lot of this. Here's the list for least worse to absolute worst as voted by them.
