Fairmount Fair, Tri-County in Baldwinsville and Marketplace Mall in Cicero next to Penn-Can were the others.

Yeah I go to Great Northern if I want to be in and out pretty quickly and don't want to deal with crowds. However, with all this development at Carousel, I think I will be going there more often. I'm pretty excited about the go-kart track And I'm glad they're finally adding more restaurants. I always thought it was strange that Carousel is the biggest mall in the area and has VERY limited dining options and really not anything close by. While Great Northern only has Ruby Tuesdays, there's still a ton of chains along Route 31.

TriCounty and Fairmount Fair both had enclosed mall periods.

Yup, Marketplace Mall an enclosed area as well. I remember going to a shoe store there as a kid with my dad in the late 80's/early 90's. I think it was on its last leg at the time. It of course closed for a while and came back as a plaza/strip mall later. Marketplace Mall

Fayetteville's Towne Center has enclosed areas too. Hallways and courtyards, etc. I don't consider that a mall though. Is there a food court and cafeteria? Several anchor stores like Kaufmann's/Macy's, JCP, Sears, etc.?

I don't remember seeing all of that, but you could get to different stores without going outside. It was an outlet mall. I know that Shop City and Northern Lights each had a little indoor section, I wouldn't call either malls.

I vaguely, very vaguely, remember going to Penn-Can mall when I was younger. I'm guessing late 70's early 80's??

As I recall it was enclosed and very nice.

UPDATE: Embryo in eighth egg from Swan Pond dies - NewsChannel 9 WSYR

This pisses me off. They had run a story last week about the eggs - guarantee some jerk kids read it and decided to go smashing. Ugh

Its weird how on some level you must remember stuff but never ever think of it. Then something jiggles that memory alittle and suddenly you remember it all.

I have not thought of Penn Can Mall in YEARS. I seen it mentioned here and I remembered alittle but then that part of my memory was unlocked and I remember it like yesterday.

It was the Summer of Star Wars so it must have been 1977 although it was a popular movie so maybe still in 78?? Anyway I was camping at Green Lakes, used to go there often which is weird cause now I live next to it and NEVER go. Musta been a rainy day so we hit a movie. I remember it made quite an impression on me, much bigger then Riverside Mall in Utica.

It brought back a ton of other memories connected, like say movies and camping. I saw Saturday Night Fever while camping up in Old Forge.

NY was a pretty awesome place back then, I wish those that weren't there could know how great it was.
