That's odd. Every time I go, the majority is always white. However, the last time I went (2 months ago), I've seen a lot of hispanic guys (as the kind you would see in the city)

Where is the food court going and what are they putting in that spot?

Not a huge fan of Grand Luxe but every time I've been there (including weekday lunchtime) they've been busy, even crowded. So I doubt that they think it's a waste of real estate. Especially since Cheesecake Factory is in the Source Mall which is turning into a ghost town these days.

It's a Yogism.

Asked why he no longer went to Ruggeri's, a St. Louis restaurant, Yogi Berra reportedly replied, "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."

They're expanding Roosevelt Field when they're putting more stores right by the Target and movie theater??? There are stores in The Source Mall and other malls that are closing down yet more malls are being built...smh..

very true, bella... was thinking that just today as i drove by the massive concrete structures and then passed a huge abandoned parking lot next to stewart and the mall. once it's paved... it's lost forever.

The other side where Home Depot and Michaels are does not seem all that busy. Why are they squishing everything into Roosevelt Field which already has horrendous parking? Maybe they should just raze it all, from the Glen Center through the Source, Target, the Panera side, Bath and Body Works, put up a Mall of America and just get it over with, already. Just pave it all and let it all die.

I hate to stereotype but most of the ones I see in the city/east NJ dress all 'gangster' and the ones I see in LI usually dress "non-gangster". I know this is going to probably spark an argument so I will stop here.

No, don't stop now. What dress constitutes all "gangster" and "non-gangster" ?

I have noticed a slight trickle of "higher end" retailers into the Field, notably Burberry when they opened in late 2010 (if I am not mistaken). I do have some misgivings about how much luxury retail the mid-island can support. The Americana Manhasset has the North Shore covered and for the truly exclusive, that's what NYC or first class/private aviation is for. Neiman Marcus items generally run from $150 to $4,000 in the men's section, for example.
