Completely Surreal Photos Of America’s Abandoned Malls

Matt Stopera, writing for Buzzfeed:

Dead malls are popping up all over the states, particularly in the Midwest, where economic decline has sped up the “going out of business” process. This map, put together by a Dead Malls Enthusiasts Facebook group, shows that well.

As Americans are faced with multiple shopping options and more stores are leaving malls, it should be interesting to see if malls and mall culture will survive. What you are about to see is what happens when malls are abandoned. It’s apocalyptic and really, really creepy.

Decay is a natural part of systems. Rejoice for that which transforms into back to nature. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not.
