A Suburban-Style Mall Is Rising in the Bronx

(The New York Times) Indoor malls in New York have received a mixed reception. Outlets like Pier 17 at the South Street Seaport and the Albee Square Mall in Downtown Brooklyn have posted lackluster performances. But the shops at the Time Warner Center and the Manhattan Mall in Midtown have generally been considered successes.

So the developers of the first suburban-style fashion mall to be built in New York City in nearly 40 years — an indoor shopping center with several levels and bookended by department stores — are taking something of a chance.
