Much closer to an "indoor suburban mall" in Manhattan is the actual Manhattan Mall in Herald Square: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan_Mall

On Hello, All That!

Number one thing I will not miss about this city: all of the whinging, hand-wringing self obsession. The next person to publish an over-long searching exegesis on "the city and authenticity" is getting tied to a chair and left in the Times Square ESPN Zone until I feel you've learned your lesson.

On Tales from Brooklyn: Short Stories About Love (Actually Sex): Part 4

This reminds me of my college CW workshops, where you'd occasionally get to read something from someone with a bit of talent, but you still couldn't get excited about it because the talented ones never wanted to write about anything beyond their limited experience, ie partying at college, fucking at college, being disaffected at college, &c. T.J. I think you're a pretty capable prose stylist, but I hope your other work reaches beyond 20-somethings playing with themselves in railroad apartments in Billyburg. There are enough J Lethems in the world already.
