  1. I just forwarded this to Jon. He’s such a great guy, and takes the archival of these places incredibly serious. Make sure you head over to /r/deadmalls and join the discord we set up…he’s a mod over there and shares often.

  2. Isn’t this the mall that had someone hiding under cars and slashing Achilles tendons as they walked by?

  3. My wife and I were just watching the Proper People video of this mall and we both yelled at the TV when they came across those blueprints and left them there. I’m all law-and-order but I also preserve media and sometimes you have to tiptoe into a gray area when nobody gives a shit about stuff that needs to be preserved, and *especially* when a property owner has abandoned the property and is letting it rot.

  4. sweet jesus this is amazing. I would kill for a blueprint.

  5. Super cool, very inspiring work. Makes me want to look up abandoned properties on the west coast to visit, suppose i might need a mask for asbestos though,

  6. This is really cool. I remember the Proper People YouTube channel’s [most recent video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n67s2r6fVKg) is this mall being explored.

  7. I love the opulence of mall fountains. I also love slices of history like this, but I can’t help feeling sad and wondering what the reality behind all these ghost town malls might be. People often say it’s a mix of online commerce and economic factors but what are the other major shifts going on that make this happen?

  8. Wow blast from the past. I grew up in Milwaukee in the 80s and 90s and was a frequent visitor to Northridge Mall. Funny to see it popping up here but I’m glad they’re preserving the archives!

  9. I just don’t understand the phrase “space-age”.

    Stuff looks the same as today, maybe a little aged, but no need to make it sound older. It really wasn’t that long ago, and most malls still look the same. :/

  10. That Arby’s restaurant design was WAY ahead of it’s time. I’m serious.

  11. Links to [Part II](https://jonrev.com/2018/10/05/nm-neon-years/) (waaayyy more photos) and [Part III](https://jonrev.com/2018/12/25/northridge-tapes/) (VHS tapes) on [jonrev]’s blog, the whole blog is a great read. This is the [Northridge Mall](https://jonrev.com/northridge/) in Milwaukee, Wisconisin ([maps link](Bowl-Of-Morcoroni.182076,-88.0111696,567m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x8804e2cc84e86573:0xbb39fdcc45f7134!8m2!3d43.1824138!4d-88.0098785" rel="nofollow ugc">https://www.google.com/maps/place/Northridge+Mall+Shopping+Center/Bowl-Of-Morcoroni.182076,-88.0111696,567m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x8804e2cc84e86573:0xbb39fdcc45f7134!8m2!3d43.1824138!4d-88.0098785)). Here are some photos by jon [of the abandoned interior](https://www.flickr.com/photos/jonrev/sets/72157693915162781) and a [much more recent walkthrough](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n67s2r6fVKg) to see how much this place has deteriorated since those old photos.

    There’s a general rule in the urban exploration community to take nothing and leave the location untouched for future explorers. Grabbing a giant stash of media out of an abandoned mall is probably frowned upon by some people. Though, I think in this case it was the right move. Sometimes you got to just do stuff because nobody else cares or can.

    Watching urbex videos it’s not uncommon to see huge stacks of one-of-a-kind books, slides, and other documents in all kinds of places, schools especially. A lot of it can get tossed, but a lot of it seems interesting enough that it’s a shame that it’s been cursed to rot away into nothing. Always thought it would be cool if there was a volunteer group that could take in some of this stuff and digitize the more interesting things for sharing and preservation. Kind of like a physical manifestation of ArchiveTeam. (I guess this guy is sorta doing that [with lost undeveloped rolls of film](https://www.rescuedfilm.com/rescued-latest))

    Anyway, that’s my thoughts on it. I love digitizing stuff and saving some of this mall’s media was pretty nifty.

    EDIT: Random examples of lost media showing up in urbex videos include [this highschool](https://youtu.be/zzXcoCU_F6A?t=758), [this computer](https://youtu.be/sCssyRYfYw8?t=990), and [this wacked up house](https://youtu.be/pWtb0AVOtiA?t=734)
