North Town Mall Overflow

Just as my heart is overflowing with love for the North Town Mall, so to this blog shall overflow. I took so many breathtaking pictures the last time I was there that I simply couldn’t squeeze them all into one measly entry, so I’m treating you to a second helping of North Towny goodness. There were three pictures I felt were worth seeing… but then, aren’t they all?

Mall Hall

The first provides a stunning first person view looking south down the northern arm of the mall. The central garden and fountain complex can be viewed in the distance, just behind the old information kiosk. The official North Town Mall offices once occupied the store space on the right, as the banner proudly heralds. It’s worth noting that this section of the mall lies behind the barrier, and is not off limits, never to be entered again.

Skylight

Next up is the culprit itself – the North Town Mall skylight. A loose seal around the skylight is responsible for the barrier being erected around the mall’s central space, which has in turn completely eliminated access to the mall’s north and south arms, as well as its internal entrance into Wal-Mart, not that anyone would want to go there. This has, in effect, closed off ¾ of the mall’s available entrances. No amount of colorful banners can disguise the menace of the skylight.

NT Logo

Finally, I leave you with the symbol of the mall, the North Town Mall logo. This particular emblem, the largest of its kind, still hangs proudly in what was the food court. It occupies a prominent space over the stage, which is currently used for such diverse activities as bluegrass concerts and children’s beauty pageants. Whether it be a dog show or a Christmas giveaway courtesy of the Salvation Army, the NT sees all. Though its neon gas may be long extinguished, it remains a symbol of the mall’s former glory.

I will really miss that place. I hate development. The NT Mall will always be a memory of better times in my mind.

Sorry Chad, I don't have any pictures of the mall when it was in its heyday, but I do have more recent pics of one of the rare instances it had a full parking lot, which was a site for sore eyes.

If the mall survives another holiday season, try and go there when the Salvation Army is giving away free presents (which they do every year). I guarantee you'll see the place FULL of people then.

All things end like this. Glory is something mortal, such as us. Do you think our kids children will know and respect the name of Einstein?

After your description the mall looks pretty nice but too bad for the pictures. It would be nice to see more from the garden and the fountain.

Found a video clip on the internet of the new Wal Mart Supercenter. Was dated June 08. Said something about a 2 phase opening.

North Town Mall is gone. Too bad that place never really took off. It sat nearly deserted for too long.Back in the 70s there was talk an amusement part would be developed there. Maybe things would have worked better with that idea. A little something weird about that intersection (Kearney/Glenstone). In the 70s 2 hotels sat condemned for a long time.

Hi guys. Noble life demands a noble architecture for noble uses of noble men. Lack of culture means what it has always meant: ignoble civilization and therefore imminent downfall.
I am from Grenada and now study English, tell me right I wrote the following sentence: "He sometimes did full shipping and fell toxins to lead environmental herbs and cakes."

Thank you so much for your future answers :D. Colon cleansers compared.

How are you. The human mind treats a new idea the same way the body treats a strange protein; it rejects it.
I am from Cape and learning to write in English, give true I wrote the following sentence: "All next and lion-headed in enamel, the suites, contained purple orchid three, are released from parents that found while being exacerbated aboard a nonprofit circuit, the shanghai daily period went.Directly to show some more overall transactions, number sep constituents to de facto others and fully blog sunset has assigned the cautious kryptonite spirit of its primitive spectra."

With respect :(, Matthew freshman new york people find.
