The mall is a ghost town still decorated in bright 1980s colors.

Each facelift would give the mall a new name.

Cincinnati Mills, Cincinnati Mall and Forest Fair Village were all tried — but all failed to create buzz.

Today, a couple of anchors (Kohl's, Bass Pro Shops) are operating on the outside of the mall, but the interior is empty.
