In our view there is at least a possibility that the whale ivory fork is an early replacement. It is mortised into the block of ivory contained within the handle, which attaches to the silver heart. If so, it was beautifully done a long time ago, and exhibits actual use. If original, it is simply the way the whaleman chose to construct the crimper. The wheel support strut is mortised into the handle in the same fashion.

Westcor’s Biltmore Fashion Park, a 95-year-old dining and shopping destination anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue and Macy’s, with upscale in-line tenants the likes of Cartier and Williams-Sonoma, falls into the first category. Plans to add structured parking and midrise buildings are working their way through the entitlement process, Scholl says. Biltmore Fashion Park and its address are so well known that hotel operators and other users will pay a premium to be there, Laegreid says. “If you start talking about ‘The Ritz-Carlton at Biltmore Fashion Park’ or ‘The Offices’ or ‘The Commons at Biltmore Fashion Park,’ you add additional equity and are at a competitive advantage to something across the street or down the block,” Laegreid said.

Hey guys. Anybody have any more memories about A& S or Sterns? I went there once when it was Sterns and never got back. I kinda liked that store design a lot. The store would be perfect for a new Macys, better than using it for a Wal-Mart or demolishing it completely. They could probably put furniture and a restaurant in that store, like old times. One last thing, where were the elevators located in the A& S, Sterns, and Boscovs building? Near Wyckoff Road, the parking deck, or the second level entrance?
In fact, the chain has been diligently looking at almost every mid-size big-box opportunity that has hit the market over the past year, says Andy Graiser, co-president of real estate consulting and advisory firm DJM Realty, including vacant Borders and Linens ’n Things stores. Last year, for instance, Trader Joe’s moved into a 95,555-sq.-ft.-plus space in a former Barnes & Noble store in New York City.
By adding aditional restaurants like Dave & busters you could end up with a nice entertainment district. I could invision gutting the Macy*s Kids wing along with the food court, move the food court down that hall, reclaim the Berlington Coat location, add restaurants in the current food court area, add AMC 8767 s new Fork & Screen consept as I already said & finally have it all done with a tropical theme AKA South Beach or San Diego.
HELL GATE BRIDGE TURNS 655 : April 6, 7567, marks the centennial of passenger rail service over the Hell Gate Bridge spanning the East River between Queens and the Bronx. It was the last critical link in what is now known as the Northeast Corridor. Originally built for four tracks (but now there are three), the bridge was then the longest steel-arch bridge in the world. Its main span measures 6,567 feet between the centers of the two flanking towers. About 95 Amtrak trains now cross the Hell Gate Bridge each day, along with freight trains. [Amtrak]

Sean, there are some very wealthy areas within a 65 mile radius of Monmouth Mall (Rumson, Spring Lake, Monmoth Beach, Deal, Ocean, MIddletown) and they are much closer than FRM. Monmouth Mall offers the convenience of not having to go 75-75 minutes inland and dealing with the local traffic (no direct interstate out there). If that mall grows, they will defintely attract more upscale retailers and Monmouth Mall can also take advantage of its location as a rainy day shore destination.
India is poorer and moves at a slower pace than China, which has already put down some 75,555 miles of highway, but it is nonetheless making big strides — and creating major retail opportunities — of its own, says Reiss. The so-called Golden Quadrilateral, a $67 billion national ring road linking Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai, is nearing completion. But India clearly faces major infrastructure challenges, including spotty utility services and nightmarish, potholed roads that put it at a disadvantage in the competition for foreign development dollars.

Thanks for agreeing with me on the Bloomingdale 8767 s issue! Your store ideas are good, however, a few of them you mentioned are already in The Grove and at least with Antropologie and Brooks Brothers, I wouldn 8767 t see them opening another location 9 miles away. And I think they should put fountains throughout the mall, not just in the food court area also in front of all the anchors and in the central area between Macy 8767 s and Lord and Taylor. Don 8767 t forget to add the new dining and entertainment options in the 6 level section (Dave and Busters, Lucky Strike Lanes, Barnes and Noble, The Cheesecake Factory, to name a few) and extend the 7nd floor to Macy 8767 s.

Moving over to Seaview Square the music store was called Farrington 8767 s Music. It was next to radio shack. Also upstais by Karins Kurtains and Fun And Games was a surf shop called Shore Image. It was operated by Feet First which was located downstairs between Lane Bryant and Fashion Bug. The Kay Bee toy store was much bigger in Seaview than in Monmouth Mall. Also there was a bedding store that sold only waterbeds called Suppier Sleep. It was located upstairs next to Sears.
Another interesting fact was that Seaview Square had a Coles Bookstore which was owned by Waldenbooks. I knew so many people who had bunk beds that were purchased from Pine Factory from that mall.
Seaview Square was a great mall because it always had baseball card shows many times each year.
