Known forty years ago as “Information Plaza,” this massive shopping mall was opened just a couple years before the Crash of ’29, which took the whole place out almost overnight. As jobs (and therefore shoppers) evaporated in the neighborhood, the stores closed like lights winking out until the entire mall was a ghost town. Unable to unload it, the developers defaulted and abandoned it and the squatters eventually moved in.
Now the place is like a homeless condoplex, with sometimes entire families living in the empty storefronts, holding trading bazaars in the food court and rotunda, and selling BTLs or even themselves out near the entrances. The place is too deep in the Barrens for the police to bother with it, and nobody wants the land as yet, assuming they could untangle its ownership from years of bankruptcy and probate.
