Historic sight as the US’s oldest shopping mall. It is now one floor of tiny but interesting shops and cafes and the other floors are now “micro-apartments”. You can walk through and come out the other side just to check out the charming building or stop in for a snack or drink at one of the cafes or browse the great vintage store.
