I just loved "THE MALL" as a teen wandering around, and most of my first jobs where there.
Little did I know that after I moved from this area that it would close it doors.
Greengate had the park-like setting of Idlewild, instead of the rush of Westmoreland Mall and Kennywood. It made shopping and just hanging out a pleasure, not a rush. Too bad for us in this very busy world.
The atmosphere was low key, not the the hyper-sterile!
And, where can we find "A Shop Called East" anymore? Our area is so full of Americana and is slow in "catching any wave" that even that shop would raise eyebrows now around here!
