Tearing down the mall was a huge mistake. I visited New Roc City only once and did not like it. They should have put more stores in the mall and built a food court. Also replacing macys with target or walmart would have attracted more people to the mall.

New Rochelle was a different place than it is today (like a lot of places)...you can bet it would be a little different today.
I just remember seeing them in that spot when I was there.

Does anyone remember the TV commercial promoting the mall?. I guess it aired in '69. They were selling it as a tropical paradise with the exotic birds below the escalator (near McCrory's). Then there was a artsy display of water drops flowing down these fiberglas strings as you went up or down the escalator. I was hoping the tv spot would be on youtube or something. No such luck, extremely rare.

Thank you for this picture. It brings back a lot of treasured memories. I remember my aunt taking me to see The Sting and my mother buying me shoes at the Buster Brown. It had a Mutoscope where for just a coin you could watch a silent film. My father bought my my first 45 rpm vinyl record (Elton John and Kiki Dee) at the record store on the second floor behind the escalators. My brothers loved the arcade and playing by the fountains outside. Who remembers Bob McAlister and him making appearances at the ice rink? Then there was Fanny Farm Chocolates and McCrory's. What about the huge bird cages that would house a a few fancy looking birds. Going back to visit my mother is sometimes sad. Things are not as clean as I remember them or people not as welcoming. I am the daughter of immigrant parents. I grew up in an Italian/ Irish area and we learned to assimilate. I am richer for it.

Ah, the good old days. I remember Burger King, and Sbarro's pizza in the food court. There was even a small arcade in the corner but that got shut down because kids were cutting school.

I remember the food court having the smoking sections lo. Good times.
