New York City’s iconic Stonewold Mall has been reopened to the general public.
The popular mall was shut down in 2012 after a fire destroyed the original building.
The mall reopened in January 2015.
The opening of the Stonewod Mall on Saturday was a welcome sight, but the mall is not yet open to the people, said Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is expected to attend the opening.
De Blasio is one of many mayors, mayors and governors who have made the effort to open the mall to the residents of New York.
The mall, the last remaining building in New York, opened in 1967 and was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and opened to the population of 1 million in 1969.
DeBlasio’s efforts to reopen the mall have drawn opposition from the Orthodox Jewish community.
“I have to say, I’ve never been to a mall, a Jewish mall, in my life,” said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, executive director of the Union for Reform Judaism.
“But I am a big believer in the mall, and the fact that we’re open and people are coming in.
That should be welcomed.”
