Downtown malls can help strengthen a downtown area by attracting businesses and consumers to a centralized attractive area. The elimination of cars and trucks can make them safer and environmentally sound. This series of articles discusses the feasibility of malls, the economic and legal requirements that need to be met. Different types of malls, pedestrian, semi, full transit way, with parking etc., are discussed in relationship to planning, design, costs and benefits. The problem of parking and access are considered. Public attitude and reactions have been studied and some results are presented. The Fulton Arcade, a pedestrian/transitway in Brooklyn, N.Y. is used as a case study. An analysis of the status of other malls in cities all over the country is also presented.
