Near the end of 2012, Boing Boing blogged about how malls are dying. In the past, I've written about my memories of Houston's Westwood Mall and Sharpstown Mall.

One site that chronicles this funeral march of roofed commercialism, is deadmalls.com. Here is a list of its Texas entries.

  2. San Antonio's Windsor Park mall used to be pretty cool. I remember seeing yesterday's blockbusters there: "For Your Eyes Only," "Clash of the Titans." And it had some of the best pizza...Luca's Pizza. Likewise, the Sunrise Mall in Corpus was a great teen hangout: 1$ Theater and two awesome arcades.
