Don’t You Remember Malls?

Y’know, there was a time when malls were bastions of activity — long before the internet, long before two or three store fronts were merged to form chintzy go-kart tracks. I feel sad when I walk into one of our local establishments and stare at the empty halls and store fronts with For Lease signs, but 21 years ago, Michael Galinksy set out to document the mall in its prime. What follows is a robust exhibit of a time that was and never will be again.

Not that we’ll miss malls – those hives of scum and villainy – but we can at least be nostalgic about them.

    Malls were nice in that you could go to one place and do many different things. Great if you didn’t have a car to get there. It was a place to go and do things with other people, hang out with friends, get something to eat, maybe even catch a movie. It was like cruising of the 50s, but you didn’t need a car. I for one will miss malls.
