Drone Video of Dead Mall Called ‘Creepy’

Filed under: dead stores — Anita @ 1:19 am

YouTube user Mike Purks posted the eerie video June 25, which combines video shot with a GoPro camera while walking through the empty, dusty hallways with soaring drone footage around the exterior. The video is accompanied by music from the “Nightmare on Elm Street” horror film.

This set has a ton of classic Target commercials from 1999.

Linton Promenade Boca Raton News, August 7, 1985

I found this newspaper article last night, after using the newspaper for this entry over at my history blog. I tried googling info about this mall, but nothing was found. I assume through the years, offices absorbed the mall.

Sweet Briar Closing in August

Sweet Briar (2015 college closure webpage archive)

Sweet Briar, a womens college is shutting down in August. Us alumni of womens colleges (including myself: Mary Baldwin, 2010) are absolutely devastated.

I visited SBC when I was looking for a womens college to transfer to after graduating from community college back in 2007:

Nooo Diet Coke

“sold out of diet coke until Wednesday”

Suffice to say, SBC never contacted me back after I filled out my application. That’s all in the past now though. I graduated from Mary Baldwin.

I visited SBC in 2009 to attend the MARCUS conference while I was a senior at MBC:

We took a pic with their pink bikes that are available to rent on campus. You can’t ride a bike around MBC, you would die.

2 years ago

I remember sitting on this couch at the prospective student orientation when I panicked and told dad I didn’t want to stay there overnight back in 2007. I sat on this couch in 2009 when I was sick at the MARCUS conference.


I want this couch.
