Abandoned Dead Malls Ted Talks
I know this is not a normal topic for my blog, however I am interested in Abandoned buildings and especially old malls that seemed to be forgotten.
I also enjoy watching Ted Talks, and this is once covers abandoned malls.
Growing up in the late 70’s and early 80’s a mall was a real treat to visit, the arcade, the food, maybe a potential new toy or a comic book. Some even had movie theaters attached as did the Worcester Center Galleria in Worcester Massachusetts.
I loved going to this mall as a child and also as an adult, although it’s name changed in the 90’s to the Worcester Common Fashion Outlets. This is a video I found of it from the 70’s to the death of the mall.
Basically malls die when the area is deemed unsafe, or it costs money to park or a newer bigger mall opens up nearby.
The internet is also making these once bustling behemoth structures become empty due to convenience.
To this day I still enjoy taking my Daughters to nice malls in the area, there still are many in Massachusetts and with some being in very affluent areas I believe a few will probably stick around for many years to come.
An abandoned mall is like seeing a place where dreams just died, it’s sad but also contains a lesson as well.
You always have to plan with the future in mind, that goes for everything.
Hope you enjoyed this ted talks on abandoned malls.
