The Golden Age of the shopping mall is slowly slipping away!
For those of us older than about 35 or so, the local mall likely played at least some role in our childhood and adult life.
Whether it was hanging out on a Saturday in high school, shopping for a gift for a special someone or something for ourselves, there would typically be some time when the brick and mortar stores at our local mall became a destination.
Unfortunately to some extent today, particularly with the advent of the internet, a struggling economy and all of the other options for buying that we have, some malls around the country have ‘died’.
Here, from the website DeadMalls.com, is a list of those malls in New York State either no longer open or possibly transformed to something else.
