I Miss This Place
These photos go back to early 2013 when I went on a shopping trip to this Scottsdale center called The Borgata. It was a whole shopping and dining complex designed to resemble the Italian town of San Gimignano. That meant it was walled like a proper Italian hilltop town. It was great for the atmosphere but turned out to be no so good for bringing in customers.
I posted about it's possible demise back in 2013 and sure enough it was demolished. Not one brick from this lovely spot remains. It was leveled and a set of condominiums took its place. In fact, I posted about the condos back in 2017 when they were opened. If you ask me, they are rather ordinary looking. Nothing as quaint or as appealing as this.
I miss being able to shop here!
