According to Wikipedia, Dixie Square Mall in Harvey, Illinois will soon be demolished to make way for a stip mall. The Dixie Square Mall is famous for two reasons: the mall was the mall used for the car chases features in The Blues Brothers, and it has been vacant longer than it was occupied. The mall opened in 1965 and closed in 1978. Since 1978, it has sat and crumbled much like River Roads Mall in Jennings, Missouri -- also being demolished soon.
