Took a trip Downtown to see the progress of the destruction of The Worcester Common Fashion Outlets/Galleria/Worcester Center. As you know, they are tearing down our childhood landmark and hang out spot to make way for the City Square development. It's a sad tale of a mall that was mismanaged into obscurity and lay useless for years. But in it's heyday, it was the place to go for shopping, eating, and meeting people. I personally met many girls there in my teenage years, and worked for a while at Jordan Marsh which led to my "Summer of 42" in the late 70's. I'll always have a special place in my heart for this piece of Worcester.
