In a mad rush to recoup their investment, the management company has rented space to stores opened with barely more than a removal of debris from the old buildings. Many have no signs or interior decor. Forget flooring - the original cracked cement floors are unchanged from decades ago. Some are located within the Paramount theatre complex, some in the pre-existing buildings. Some have opened in plastic shells awaiting construction. Indeed some are little more than tables set up in the arcades. Will they survive the long winter?

The available vendors are largely selling tacky souvenirs and gifts but some more upscale offerings are also available including furniture and accessories. One sells prints of old movies and stars of music, stage, and screen in a very retro setting and another antiques.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
