    While I think your title doesn’t make any sense and should be something like ,”City Center: As peoples shopping habits changed our location stopped being viable; yeah, there is a little slump right now in the economy but to suggest shopping habits on the whole are any different would be ridiculous,” those pictures are pretty striking. Especially the ones with the boy. Are they selling those statues?

    These are amazing. I’ve only been inside the building once, so I appreciate getting such a stark look at it. Thanks.

    I asked the man if they were selling them, he said “take a guess how much they are going for?” I guessed 15k. He said they were appraised at 185k and there was a bid on the table for 100k.

    Hmmm. That’s a little above my nostalgic bronze statue budget at the moment.

    I remember working there years ago part-time for a friend at her store, The Tie Rack. Shortly over a Christmas season later on for another friend at the short lived Warner Brothers store.

    Nice pics. To add to the pile of ridiculous ideas, I got the urge to fill up the whole place with water and fill it with tropical fish.

    You know, and bellydancers :)

    We can teach the fish to put on concerts and art shows…

    On a serious note, great pictures.

    I really like the album! I’m not as sure about the title: consumerism only killed City Center by going elsewhere.

    I loved going there in college. it was like an experience, take the COTA bus downtown with a bunch of people. I had my first date there with my first boyfriend in college! spinnakers.

    plus they had a store with really great chocolate covered coffee beans.

    oh the memories.
