There has always been shopping in the mall downtown. Recently the mall was renovated with the roof being removed and replaced by a glass ceiling. The result is a much brighter mall with the structure becoming an attraction in its own right.

What to buy: If possible, avoid the downtown area at lunch time (noon to 1pm, weekdays). Office workers besiege the food outlets and stores during this time and you?ll get much better service if you visit outside this one hour a day.

Directions: Between 1st and 4th streets and 7th and 8th Avenues South West.
Theme: Other
