I wish the owner would not rent out to urban clothing stores. Maybe it would reverse this new migration that has came in.

We refer to NRM as the "scary mall". I go there only if I absolutely have to and usually shop Yorktown or Oak Brook. Shopped at NRM in the middle of the day during the holiday season and felt unsafe. Those sad urban clothing stores are a joke.

North Riverside mall is giving in to the ghetto urban culture just like Berwyn is by having graffiti classes. I remember NRM in 1988 and what a nice mall it was. But there are some people here who call NRM good because it's diversity. Hear that granny you were mugged by a diversity thug.

The NR Mall got a makeover back in 89 when they removed the center fountain , cement Islands , added elevator and escalator in center , and put in the food court and theatres , not to mention the additional tiered parking by JCPenny's.

I don't care what makeover they have planned for the future , it will still attract the west side of Chicago and Cicero-Berwyn Residents , so gone are the days when it resembled Whiteopia.

Most so called sophisticated folks turn their noses up and shop in Hodgkins , Oak Brook ,Oak Park , Lombard , Bolingbrook areas , and that includes up and coming Hispanics.

One one of those. I would rather go to 95th mall than got NRM. And just like my friends who live by Ford City would rather drive to 95th mall.
I know why and those that know the area know why.

O.k, lets just say I'm scared and I answered you.
But answer me this.
Why do nice places go to hell when the majority is 60% Mexican or black?
Can you answer that without any name calling?

AWWWW!!!! Am I offending you? It's not only Mexicans destroying neigborhoods it's all races. It's easy too blame Mexicans because they are a majority. The reason why some mexicans are bad is because of bad parenting plain and simple! Same goes for ricans!

Yeah, if you want to answer to Fat Tony and his hitmen, I'm sure they would love to beat some sense into you. As soon as the Polish see you they would jump you while you try to walk the streets. I'm pretty sure the Italians wouldn't want your kind there. I new some guy who wanted to move to Elmwood park and he was an ex-gangbanger with tattoos on his person, he asked the mafia if it was okay for him to move there and they said yes on one condition, they didn't him to misbehave in any way. And he lives there now with no problems. You wouldn't want to live near any other race because you are a scared little pussy cat!

It's amazing that still today crazy ass white people (most of whom floated to the US from European countires) are so quick to blame urban culture and even clothing stores for individual ignorance. You are just as ignorant as the people you criricize.

So NorthRiverside Mall is o.k. just as it was in the 80's. Just because it's more black & Mexican doesn't mean it's bad, right?

its funny to read things on here and no one really thinks? that it is every one who dont give a dam they are the ones making it bad for everyone else.people should take a look at them selves before they look at others. i know i done that many of times.there is bad in everyone just as good but it is up to us to try to make things better for our selves and i know it is hard.one day you can leave you doors open next day you cant if we cant help each other then move on.

I was the absolute last customer in Montgomery Wards at North Riverside mall when it closed down about 6 years ago. I bought a great leaf blower for $ 10 -- so there now you know in case anybody asks.
