Step Inside An Abandoned Ohio Mall That's Eerily Well Preserved
The Forest Fair Village Mall in the northern suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio was once a bustling community hub and shopping paradise. Now, it is a maze of silent hallways and slowly decaying storefronts.

“This is Dan Bell.”
Forest Fair Village was formerly known as Cincinnati Mall, Cincinnati Mills and Forest Fair Mall.
The two-story, enclosed mall was built in 1989, and once offered more than 150 stores and shops.
The mall closed in 2002, in part due to the growth of online shopping. Today, only one independent store in the mall is open.
The ruins contain over 1.5 million square feet of decaying retail space, including an abandoned movie theater, arcade and food court.
This abandoned mall might be converted into business space, or even residential apartments. For now, however, the mall remains empty.
It’s so interesting to see the way buildings looks just after they’ve been abandoned, rather than only after decades of rot and decay have taken hold. Check out the footage of the decaying mall below:
