It's too bad Macy's and Sears are leaving their ugly buildings there. Someone should have convinced them to put new buildings in their place. It will look kind of funny next to new construction.

I thought that Macy's has agreed to update their exterior. As for sears they were still negotiating.

Mike....this is what is going to keep SImon from finishing the project. They will claim that Macy's and Sears haven't upgraded their facilities to merge into the 'Shops of Nanuet' cocpet, so they will end up selling the land. This is a totoal write off for the company after they salvage what they can reuse.

Great! I hate malls. Knock them all down & bring back our downtowns, without the corporate chains. Towns like Westwood & Ridgewood are thriving.

Why are those buildings ugly? Why do we have to tear down every old building in Clarkstown? Two older buildings (if being built in the 60s really makes it "old") would give the mall more character than if it looked like every other mall around. You could even call it retro.

Trying to remember where I parked when I went in to get a Charley's cheesesteak...

I agree that not all old buildings should be torn down, but I disagree about the Macy's and Sears structures at Nanuet Mall. I find them ugly as I do the entire Palisades Center Mall, But I am sure some people may find them attractive. If a building has some sort of architectural or historical value, I am all for restoring it. I don't believe that the Macy's or Sears buildings are worth keeping, in my opinion. These are outdated looking retail buildings, not historical or architecturally significant. For the same reason almost all retail centers get updated periodically, these should as well. Newer structures would actually be more efficient and safer as well, since they are built to current codes.

At least I use my real name Ben...and it isn't buzzkill..merely my opinion. SHow me proof that we will get the 'Shops at Nanuet'...when I see it actually happen, I will change my tune. For now I will sing this song and try to keep it in key.
