Up to the year 1930, Crown Heights was part of the original Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club, when the first Crown Heights lots were offered for sale. Crown Heights is bounded by Western and Walker; it begins on the north side of 36th and includes the north side of 42nd.
The Crown Heights addition features Tudor Revival style homes in over 40% of the neighborhood. Common features are a steeply pitched roof, multiple front gables, decorative half-timbering, massive chimneys and tall, narrow windows with multi-pane glazing. The second most popular style is Colonial Revival accounting for 35% of the residences. Features include having a side-gabled roof and an accentuated front door. The third most common style is a typical one-story Minimal Traditional, a simplified version of the Colonial Revival, which is typically one-story with a moderately pitched roof.
Other styles that appear include Mission-Spanish with stucco walls and tile roof, Classical Revival with prominent columns, Monterey with its characteristic balcony, French Eclectic with steeply pitched roof and quoins and the International Style with flat roof and casement windows. There are several excellent examples of Art Deco, and many home interiors reflect Art Deco details regardless of the exterior style.
Crow Heights characterizes itself as feeling like a “small-town” or an old-fashioned neighborhood where people know their neighbors. The annual Fourth of July Parade and Picnic are attended by hundreds of residents and friends, as are Oktoberfest, Progressive Dinners, the Easter Egg Hunt and other events.
