That Mall is sick and that Store is dead!

A Drive Down Newmarket Fair Mall/Newmarket North Mall

Ok, this is bad video, and I should have cleaned my windshield first, but I ran out of wiper fluid. I did this on a whim.

This mall (in Hampton, VA) stopped being a mall in 1998-ish, and became Netcenter, an office complex. Only Sears and Piccadilly Cafeteria remains.

I had to duck my digital camera at one point because an Amsec worker was outside an entrance on his break.

I drove from the old Miller & Rhoads to the very last mall entrance before Sears.

  1. Cool, thanks for the video, Anita. What else can capture those pyramid shapes in the outer walls.

    Was just down in the area but got no closer to N. News than Smithfield. This vid couldn’t have come at a better time.

    In 1978 with a learner’s permit and my mom riding shotgun, I nearly clipped a crossing pedestrian along that very stretch. It wasn’t really that close (2 feet maybe), but I was ready to walk or ride rather than drive another foot.
