nothing to do in fact the whole mall is closed theres like 3 stores left in the mall one of them includes Napolis, herbergers closed, the only thing teens really have to do is illegal activites, i lived in hastings for 15 years and now im currently in a group home in norfolk, teens in hastings are in all kinds of legal trouble, and hastings high is a bad place to be to, the teens there actually attack Mr. Szlanda the principle, almost every month.

the entire mall is now a place where old farts go and walk for exercise.
