My Lights Are Green

Traffic Light Montage

I believe we’re both going off on vacation for the holiday weekend, so there might not be much in the way of updates over the next few days unless one of us gets a chance to toss something up from the road. Personally, I’m headed down for a long recon trip through the Mid-Atlantic, and with any luck will have visited hundreds of square miles of new, thickly-packed retail territory by the end of next week. This means I’m hoping to have enough material for dozens of new posts on malls around Baltimore and Washington. Given the flooding all over the news, however, it may not be so easy to get everywhere! Wish me luck, and a happy 4th of July to all of our readers!

  1. hello.

    i’m using an iBook and i can’t seem to access your email address, so i’ll leave this in comments.

    A. your site is amazing.
    B. you should check out two malls in Delaware and Maryland: The Blue Hen Mall in Dover, Delaware and The Salisbury Mall in Salisbury, Maryland.

    The Blue Hen Mall is now called a business center but I would venture to say that 90% of its late-70s-mid-80s decorations remain intact. It also had a gigantic Woolworths which closed in the early 90s but remains in its original condition.

    Also, the Salisbury Mall, as far as I recall, is in its orginal condition, and even more vintage than the Blue Hen Mall.

    Anyway, hope that helps.

  2. Thanks CC! That’s a great tip. Unfortunately I didn’t make it up that way on my travels the other day. This weekend was a classic case of over planning on my behalf, and I didn’t get to everywhere I’d planned. Dover and Salisbury are on my relatively-short list, though, so I’m glad I didn’t go all the way and miss something important!

    Thanks again for the tip! These things really make a big difference.
