(Manitowoc, WI 2015) – The Lakeview Centre mall, known as the “Mid-Cities Mall” back in its heyday (if it could ever have been considered to have a heyday) has been abandoned since the closing of the JC Penny — the last surviving store in the mall — back in 2011.  By order of the city, it is supposed to be torn down this year. Abatement is already underway, and demolition should start this summer, so this may have been my last chance for photographs.

The 22 acre property sits within an easy stroll to the Lake Michigan shoreline and a beautiful walking/biking trail that links it with nearby Two Rivers. I hope they they end up turning this property into something nice.
