Thanks to George Romero, the shopping mall is central to the Zombie mythos. But the Age of the Mall is behind us and we need to find new places to hide from the undead. Here's a great photo essay on an abandoned mall in Ohio:

I'll post some of my own dead mall shots when I get a chance. Post 'em if you got 'em.

Reminds me of the Mountaineer mall near where I grew up. It was the closest mall an hour away so trips there were special. When we got old enough mom would drop us at the arcade and pick us up when she was done. I spent a lot of $ at Radio Shack when they had a lot more small parts. Went back a few years later and it was mostly boarded up with a WalMart in one end.

China does everything so fast these days they built the largest mall in the world and then immediately abandoned it.

We don't have Malls as much as other strange buildings...

It may look abandoned and it is, damaged in the 64 earthquake. Too much trouble to tear down...

The big industrial/ mining looking thingee would make a good ZPAW fortress. I bet you could buy it for cheap.

One of my secret addictions is Gold Rush (laugh if you like) but one of the guys in the show bought one he said he paid a million for it.

So interesting, but the photos also make me feel strangely nervous and somewhat repelled.
