Beautiful photo of Southland’s skylight before Best Buy moved in.

I still hate Best Buy for this…

Before it felt like you were walking into this huge triangle. Now you walk into Best Buy and notice in passing that the ceiling is really high. The skylight used to be such a centerpiece to the mall (and still is). Best Buy’s presence has just minimized it. Another thing that makes me uneasy about Best Buy being there is just the fact that Best Buy is at a high risk of losing business to the Internet and going out of business one of these days. It would really leave a big hole in the mall if that happened.

Lincoln Park Plaza at Fort and Emmons, then and now

I believe it’s totally empty today if I’m not mistaken
