OK, I admit that I am somewhat of an old goober because I have not visited the place since late 2003, but it is definitley a place that I can get use to visiting more often. Let me say that I am not a big fan of malls, but the place overshadows all the negative sterotypes that malls have. From some of the other places that I have been to, I felt that it is definitely a leader in design, urban infrastructure (I know that sounds like somewhat of an oxymoron when dealing with malls), but it definitely has it with underground and garage parking, it is definitely an awesome mixed use development for being built in the 70's with hotels and retail space, and I found that some of the stores were somewhat pedestrian friendly such as the Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and the stand alone Tiffany store. I have found that the place holds some awesome claims as far as European retailers headed to the states, that cities like NYC cannot even claim, which is easily the retail mecca in the U.S. I admit, I'm from Boston and I am a sucker for sidewalk retail and I would love to see these stores in more of an urban outdoor environment, but there are definitely no complainmts here after my recent visit. Is anybody on the same page as I am? I guess mainly Houstonians could only anwer this question.
