Located in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City, the Deep Deuce District (located at Northeast 1st Street and Central Avenue) may be small but its historical significance runs deep. In the 1940s, it was Oklahoma’s premier African-American jazz and business district, and was home to jazz legends such as Charlie Christian, the Blue Devils and Jimmy Rushing. Today the neighborhood is still bopping, but to a slightly different beat. It is now an urban neighborhood home to local favorite restaurants such as Deep Deuce Grill and the Wedge Pizzeria, as well as housing like The Deep Deuce Apartments and Level Urban Apartments, with more on the way. Each year the area hosts the Deep Deuce Music Festival and features jazz and blues bands, and local artists. So if jazz, blues, art or a cool modern vibe is your thing, you won’t want to miss this historical district.

I am moving to the OKC area and I am a full-time student. I love the bricktown area but need to keep my rent at a cost under 700 a month. Do you have any nice rentals for my budget?
