Twofingers, Good list, congratulations! Remember Saan's coffeeshop, and McClouds in Capri, heck, Capri getting built?

Yes - Tha Capri - still to this day, there are hundreds of feet of tunnels throughout the entire mall. It was Joe Capozzi's dream to build a major centre with a high-rise office building. The second floor - above what used to be Wosk's and the Liquor Store - (where Dr. DeGruchy and Dr. Weisbeck used to have their offices) has a big square open area in the middle - that was going to be the elevator shafts.
Remember when the second swimming pool was on the 7th floor?
Remember when Capri Electric used to have a shop in trhe mall?
