Cars line some filled and some vacant storefronts at the Fingerlakes Crossing shopping plaza on Thursday morning. The shopping center was developed as a result of the opening of Bass Pro Shops across the street in 2004.
Celebrities and government officials attended a packed ribbon-cutting ceremony. Tens of thousands of shoppers filled the store and spilled into the rest of the mall. Today, though, the scene at the mall is much quieter. Date Added: June 1st, 2009
