That Mall is sick and that Store is dead!

My Newmarket Fair Mall Sociology Essay (April, 2007)

The document in Microsoft Word 2004 for OS X

My superior; Brian Florence over at deadmalls.com surprised me this morning by pasting my essay I wrote for my Sociology 202 class last year on Newmarket Fair.

The essay is here.

Also, he finally posted something I’ve been working on and off with for a while. A blog that mentions tiny updates on each mall at deadmalls.com. Sometimes we get a little update on a mall that is on the site. An update that is important, but um…not important enough to open the page, edit the HTML, and FTP it to the server? The blog is at http://deadmalls.wordpress.com.

  1. I like your “Imagine it is the year 1995” and see it now comparison.

    Having left the area in the mid-1980s and only visiting a week or so out of the year since then, I already felt like some Rip Van Winkle to see the busy mall Newmarket North that was in the late 70s become the remodeled ghost mall, Newmarket Fair. The new food court seemed surrounded by blank white walls of unrented space.

    Given all those changes you document in the time since Newmarket Fair, it’s lucky that Sears and Picadilly are still around.

    Thanks again.
