Great new documentary: "My Brooklyn" by Kelly Anderson with the support of historian Craig S. Wilder at MIT.
The first time I visited the Fulton Mall was as a teenager in the 1990s. I was so excited to hang out with my friends and go shopping without adults. Fast forward to 2008, I moved to Northern Park Slope as an adult joining the later gentrifiers. I always felt like I had one foot in the Fulton Mall and the other in Gorilla Coffee! I was surprised (I really shouldn't be) to recently learn about the plans to demolish/redevelop the Fulton Mall (see National Retailers Discover a Brooklyn Mall in the NYT).
