Towson Town Center does not have the same feel as it used to. On several occasions on recent weekend evenings, there were large groups of young people wondering around, and security guards were everywhere.

Has there been an increase in crime at the mall? Is the mall going downhill? How about the rest of Towson? I guess it's somewhat comforting to know that security has a strong presence there, but I don't remember it being like this 5-10 years ago.

I try to avoid the place, but given that it recently opened a luxury wing with the likes of Tiffany, Louis Vuitton, and Burberry, I don't see any evidence that the mall is going downhill. Malls in general are declining, but the major malls like TTC are growing at the expense of the marginal malls like Owings Mills, White Marsh, and Marley Station.

Towson isnt going downhill. they've remodeled and added new high end stores. there arent really any stores there that can be considered ghetto except DTLR, and even that store isnt bad.

Even with the luxury wing, I honestly do not feel safe there on weekend evenings. The area by the high-end stores is pretty empty. Try visiting on an upcoming weekend and see if you notice anything.

I feel the same way that's why I don't go there as much anymore. The movie theatre went down hill along time ago, I haven't been there in over four years. Even with the more luxurious stores it doesn't have the same feel that it used to and yes there is more crime going on in and around the mall. When I was in high school I never would've expected there to be a stabbing in the food court.

I've never felt unsafe at towson, the stabbing was a random incident, not the norm. security, mondawmin are worse.

Are you talking about Towson or Owings Mills? Does Towson even have a movie theater?

But anyway, I certainly wouldn't say Towson Town Center is going downhill. The only reason some of the areas seem empty is because the mall is ginormous. And any mall in America will have teenagers hanging out on the weekends, for the most part they are harmless...if they really wanted to commit crimes I'm sure they would find some better places to do it than the Towson Town Center.

The only thing I'd say is "downhill" is the homeless guy that stands on the corner across from PF Chang's. He is harmless too but having a homeless guy standing right in front of your mall probably doesn't give off the image of "luxury"

I was talking about Towson Commons, which is close to the mall and I don't know anyone that goes to it anymore. I haven't been to Owings Mills since I was little and I don't think I'll ever go back, it's not close and I know it has problems.
