Then & Now: Brookdale Mall Site (1967/2013)

I won’t give you a history lesson today on Brookdale Mall, or go on and on about lackluster out of state ownership, or the changes in the socioeconomic status of the area around the mall over the years. Let’s just look at the facts:

Brookdale Mall: Born in 1962, Died in 2010, Demolished in 2011.

It’s a Walmart now.

Happy Holidays, you guys.
