The huge parking lot at Hunt Valley Mall looks like some barren moonscape. It's where the great American suburban dream ran out of gas. The mall is so bleak, so empty even in this Thanksgiving week, that it feels as if it's been quarantined and shoppers have been warned to stay away, at risk of contagion.Inside the big place, there's a sense of loneliness, of having made a wrong turn somewhere. You walk into stores where even the employees seem to have vanished. Maybe they've ducked out back for a smoke, or a quickie job interview at some other mall.

On the night before they closed the doors at Macy's at Hunt Valley Mall, we walked through the huge rooms and felt like intruders at an indoor graveside service for an old acquaintance.The big place had a haunted, eerie feel, as though staged by Rod Serling. The sign on the front door said, "Sale: Take 85 Percent Off Ticketed Price," but there was almost nothing left to ticket and nobody left who cared.About 50 feet inside the front door, a handful of people lined up with self-consciously bowed heads and checked out the final remains of merchandise.
