Fun mall. I love it. Only negative is that half the escalators don’t work.”EVER”. Also the pandemic has hit this mall hard. Half the stores are closed.

I started coming to the Palisades Center when it first opened over 20 years ago. At that time, it was a vibrant place. Many people, many restaurant choices, plus movies, great shopping, activities. We used to be able to spend the whole day - it was fun, it was a destination. I recently went on a week day in August 2020. It's now a boring, empty, dark, sad place. It's very muggy, always was. Something with the air conditioning not being correctly done for such a large, high space. Now half the stores are closed, half the restaurants are closed or seem to have nobody in them, there's nowhere to sit throughout the mall (due to the pandemic, all seating areas have been taken away). I am not sure if it was so empty and sad because of the pandemic, or because online shopping killed brick and mortar retail, or because of something else. This mall must be bleeding money. I can't imagine it staying open with nobody going there. With half the stores closed, the mall is not receiving rents. It's sad. The atmosphere is dead. We just went to the Danbury Mall which, despite the pandemic, has a lot of people in it, a packed food court, every store open. It was a depressing place and we decided we would not return any time soon.…

Why is it that this place, every time I have visited, smells like dog sh!t? And I mean after 5 or 6 cans of Alpo. Avoid at all costs. And bring a weapon to defend yourself.

I used to go here in years past, but haven't been here until this past January. They're trying to hold on, but with their big stores closing, it's hard for them. The Jcpenney department store closed already, the Bed Bath & Beyond store is in the process of closing as is the Lord & Taylor store! Also there are many vacant smaller stores. Big spaces are empty and the mall is definitely not what it used to be. Very sad indeed.…
