Vince Vitrano: Not For Broadcast

OLD TIME MAYFAIR

REMEMBER THAT TIME WHEN...

  • Print

Remember that time when there was an ice rink inside Mayfair?

I loved old Mayfair Mall. It was before the food court. Before the second level stores. Before the movie theater (with exception of that out-building that housed two screens in the east parking lot.

I loved that river with the fish... and I loved that ice rink. I'm only going all nostalgic, because I stumbled on a document the other day that really made me laugh, for so many reasons. I remember taking skating lessons at the ice rink there. I had not remembered receiving an "Achievement Award" noting I had passed the "Beginner" level and thus qualified for "Advanced Beginner" lessons.

More than skating, really, I liked sitting up by the windows in the McDonald's and looking down on the skaters. Remember that huge gas fireplace at the McD's too? 

I guess I had no point to this entry... other than the hope that memories of that old place years ago would give you the warm fuzzy feeling it gave me. That's all.
