    Welcome to the Saddest 1980s Mall in America (19 Pics)

    Think of the funnest place where you hung out as a teenager, when you were first allowed to go out with your friends on your own and pick up the latest chart-topping single. Now imagine it looking as sad and empty as this.

    Meg Stefanac from Pittsburgh, a former high school newspaper and yearbook photographer from the class of ’87, recently revisited her former teenage stomping ground, the Century III Mall in West Mifflin, PA.

    On what is supposed to be the busiest shopping weekend of the year, Meg and her husband decided to take a stop into the mall “for old times’ sake. You know, just to take a look around and relive some happy memories.” But it wasn’t exactly the blast from the past she had in mind….
    “Built in 1979, it was THE place to be for those living in the South Hills of Pittsburgh in the 80’s,” Meg remembers, “We pitied those who had to live their lives without such a mall nearby. It was always crowded and bustling, and it was frequently difficult to quickly work your way across as you navigated through a sea of neon clothing and big hair held firmly in place with Aqua Net.”
