Whoa . . .
Check out the coverage at the SickMalls blog (aka That Mall's Sick And That Store's Dead).
Used to go to Coliseum Mall a bunch as a kid with my mom. The flyover was a distinctive piece of highway then & now. But the mall is gone and the flyover's on its way out.
Demolished malls are the new urban renewal (as in "brown is the new black").
