Gglesburg Register-MaiI, Galesburg, 111, Wednesday, June 17, 1973 % 1 By MAtlTY RALBOVSfcY PARAMUS, N.J. (NBA) - Tliis city, 15 miles west of Times Square, was covered by farmland, wihlch Reduced torn, beams and pumpkins, 20 years ago. Today, it is Inundated by labyrtrithian shopping centers; indeed, there are people who live in Paramus who refer .to their city as ihe ''shopptog-conter capital of the world." Second In a Series The Garden State Plaza, on Route 17, houses over 100 stores. The Fasten Center, four miles north of k on Route 17, houses 50 stores. The Bergen Mall, three miles 1 east of it on Route 4, houses over 100 stores. Intertwined among .them are independent stores that are large enough to be shopping centers themselves: Alexander's; Bloomingdale's Korvette's. To the casual motorist, it is impossible to drive ito Paramus and find a small oity; whatever is left of Paramus is hiding somewhere behind the sophisticated script of the Lord and Taylor sign. THE PEOPLE IN Paramus will tell you .that, 15 years ago, they encouraged the local politicians to lure the shopping centers to their city. The reason: The shopping centers would pay such high property taxes, they would tower the tax rate for the homeowners. When the first shopping center was built — the Garden State Plaza, in 1958 — the local residents began pouring the money they saved on their Ecological Disasters 9 for Paramus U.S. Shopping Center . . . haven for more than consumers own property into the new stores in their shopping center. Now, the cycle has come full circle: Growing numbers want the shopping centers out. But, alas, shopping centers, they have found out, are commercialized Gibraltars; they are immovable and indestructible — ithey are there to stay, contingent upon the next Ice Age. ".From an ecological standpoint," said Ralph Morse, former resident of Paramus, "the shopping centers are disasters. The traffic, the fumes, (he buses, the trucks: You go to bed at night and you hack yourself to sleep. They run buses from as far away as Albany, back and forth, to the molls; the trucks never stop coming in to load and unload; the cars, you check the license plates, they're from Vermont, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New York State — every place but Jersey. "THE CENTERS WIPED out the local businesses. You want to buy a newspaper, or a pack of cigarettes late at night, you gotta go to the shopping center, there's no place else. And you know what? Shopping centers don't sell newspapers. I've got to drive 10 miles to Ridgewood, to a little comer store, to find out what else is going on in the world." In Paramus, there not only is a store to fit every pocketbook, there seems to be a shopping center to fit every pocketbook as well. The Fashion Center is the most exquisite of them all: It has winding, spiral staircases, bubbling fountains, thick red carpets on the floor, soft lighting overhead and classical music oozing out of the walls from some unseen stereophonic nerve center. Inside Fashion Center, the roster of distinguished resident stores includes a brokerage firm, "Dean Witter and Co., Inc., Members, New HELD OVER By POPULAR DEMAND BUY 4 FOR THE 4th AND SAVE!

The Garden State Plaza and the Bergen Mall in Paramus both appeal to what seems to be a white, middle-class clientele. Black faces are rare among the throngs on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons that sometimes reach as many as 10,000 people.
