Nanuet Mall Last Call

Now it's official. Effective January 31, 2012, the mall is closed. While the anchor stores remain open as planned, strangely, the two barber shops and Banchetto Feast decided to occupy the mall, buck the December 31st closing date, and remain open. All have finally closed and the demolition has begun (starting with asbestos abatement). Like the best explorations, it involved hiding from security on multiple occasions.
