Malls are suburban for the most part I thought. I'm not sure but you do not seem to like cities much or you like your cities to be as suburban as possible. Yeah malls are sometimes suburban and sometimes not. There are malls in larger cities, for example in Providence, RI there is one right smack in downtown. The mall in Savannah is away from the town on the outskirts which I noted as a plus because it wasn't near the downtown area. Savannah is pretty sprawled out, when you reach the outskirts it doesn't resemble the old world downtown area which I prefer. I don't like suburban as possible or I'd be living in Litchfield, CT, Vermont, or New Hampshire, etc. I like to have the conveniences of a large city at my fingertips without having to live directly in the middle of the chaos. That's why I have fun when I visit NYC, Chicago, Boston, etc yet wouldn't necessarily like to live there.
