Stockholm: Klarabergsg

I like this boulevard in Central Stockholm's Norrmalm region. It's simple, but grand at the same time. The tree-lined canopy framing both sides of the street makes a nice impression. It's extremely busy, and there's a lot of life taking place here. It's also pretty simple. Why couldn't OKC try to replicate this, instead of some 8-lane monstrosity? Is Stockholm's Klarabergsg, which serves as a central artery that connects Norrmalm and Sodermalm, any less impressive?

Are we really going to build OKC to be more urban and more impressive than...Stockholm? Be real.
