As people get older they tend to think back to the good old days of their youth. There's a comfort in being a kid as today's styles, trends and music, etc. could never compete with what was in style when we were growing up. Needless to say, many of us love nostalgia.

As someone who grew up in Massachusetts, particularly the Berkshires I think back to the days when the Berkshire Mall in Lanesborough was the place to be or the fun that kids had at the Dream Machine arcade which was located in the "L" shaped Mall in North Adams. How about the sinking boat known as The Seabee in the Allendale shopping center in Pittsfield? That was just a magnificent site and I was sad to see it exit the stage over 20 years ago. And who could forget about the days of Riverside Park in Agawam just east of Berkshire County? There were so many unique attractions back in the day that we'll probably never see them again, at least in person.
