If you looked at my del.icio.us bookmarks from the other day you saw my link to Suzanne Kofke's photos of the Dixie Square Mall in Harvey, IL (brief history for the uninitiated: opened in the mid '60s, closed in the late '70s, abandoned and left to the elements ever since, its only subsequent legal, commercial use being a Blues Brothers set location the year after the mall closed). Suzanne has added many more pictures in the past day or so, and the server's behaving a lot better too. I urge anyone interested in photography and/or urban exploration to venture over there. (Related links: CLUI's Dixie Square Mall page and a very informative page at DeadMalls.com. And finally, the money shot: DixieSquare.com!!)
