Pavone's pizza! I think I spelled it right. The women would remember Barbara Moss, how about Fay's Drugstore

What about Carmel Corn, Anderson Little, Ormonds? They should have left the mall the way it was. Every store that goes there moves out. People don't want to go in one store, then get in their car to go to another store. Bring back the old Riverside Mall!

My wife and I used to love this place. There was just something about it. The ambiance was great. Have not been to a mall that compares.

They closed the mall down to keep the italians from hanging around.

First of all, what do you care, you don't even live here? Second of all, if it ain't broken, don't fix it. Riverside Mall was a great mall. It's not a matter of us reminicsing as to why Utica hasn't moved ahead. You see, we are a generous city that has welcomed thousands of Refugees to our city. We have also had to carry the burden of the scumbags who come to visit their families at the Marcy Correctional facility (something our elected officials felt would be great for this economy as far as jobs go) make Utica and Oneida County their new home so they can collect their welfare. So jerk, don't blame us for the situation in Utica. Oh, and by the way, why don't you go on the forums in your own hometown and leave this one if you don't like what we have to say.

Yeah God forbid the Goombags have another place to "head honcho-ize".

Typical Uticans: They can't get out of their own way but want to "run" this, and control everything.

We see what a fine job they have done with Utica!

I saw some more a while back,at least 15 or so different ones but I cant remember where I saw them. The section between center court and where Bradlees was is still there as you can see.I will try and find the other photos,they were much better and showed more of it in detail.
