I see the striped areas along the street where they altered the parking a few years ago and wish the city would come back and actually put in a streetscape.  Everything currently outside of a few blocks is really disjointed from a pedestrian standpoint.  New sidewalks, landscaped planters, street trees, etc would be a huge improvement.  There also needs to be a way to slow down traffic on 15th, possibly a light at St Louis and better pedestrian crossings at Quaker, Quincy, Rockford, Trenton and Troost.

We witnessed a car flip up on its side outside SMOKE a couple of years ago.  Driver just wasn't paying attention, hit a parked car and flipped going at least 35-40.  Damn fortunate there wasn't anyone crossing the street at the time.  For being such a pedestrian district there's not much to calm the traffic along there or at least any efforts at it appear to have failed.

Like I have said before - shut it down to automobile traffic.  Cover it.  Redirect traffic.  Do what Las Vegas did with Fremont Street!!  Now, THAT was some forward thinking action - the place is so much better for it.!!

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

We were at Drake's one night many years ago and a motorcycle leaving the Full Moon decided to try to pass a car on the right, not seeing the truck parked by the curb.  Hit it so hard the truck went up onto the sidewalk.  Luckily he survived.  It'd be great if there was more parking just to block off the street at night/weekends.  People still like to drive to the storefront in Oklahoma though.
