The Strand

The Strand (in Summit, NJ)!

Tucked away in downtown Summit, there’s a little halfway-indoors mall— an arcade, perhaps?— called The Strand.

(What’s weird about this— for me— is that “The Strand” is a very large, very well-known used bookstore in Manhattan. But that is not what this is a photo of.)

According to cinematreasures.org, the Strand was a movie theater until it closed in the late 1980s. It was renovated into an “open-air mall” sometime after that. Pretty cool!

  1. Nice photo documentation of the otherwise unremarkable contemporary landscape. So renovated, huh? That there is the fixed up version of a movie theatre? Did anything survive except the name?
