    I always like strolling through this place. It's fun seeing the tacky stores on my way to the train. Also good for staying out of the rain/snow/heat/cold.

    Avoid using the restroom at all costs

    Step back into the 1980s. This is the mall mentioned in song for The Fresh Prince of Bellaire. The food court is still there, but the mall part is mostly gone.

    Don't buy oil from the oil vendors walking around, it will make your skin breakout. Just buy them from the stands.

    The worst ghetto place in philly. Very unfriendly security. Not cell phone friendly. Barely stuff to buy. Not doing it anymore.

    This place is ghetto fabulous but people love it here!

    The classical music that plays in the mall kills me. Frasier tunes for a Tyler Perry audience.

    The gallery is cool but you do got a lot of young kids down here especially teenagers that hang down here all the time and have nothing else to do. it's like a hang out for them.

    One word....ghetto

    Nick Taylor · July 10, 2013
  • Adrian S.

    Ghetto as all hell. If you have extra time and money just go to deptford or king of Prussia. Never come here.

    Adrian Sills · June 27, 2013

    Bourbon Street Cafe is so good, but those employees have to learn how to take a fuckin compliment. They always look like somebody just died.

    What an interesting place.

    Worst mall ever.

    Don't eat in the food court. Take your food with you and enjoy the city. Ignore any homeless people asking for change. Be sure to Purell after you leave.

    Guess you know when all your options has failed once you decided to shop here

    Ratchet, however, nice food court fast good selection

    Crystal C · April 13, 2013
  • Ramon R.

    The most horrid of malls (if you would call it that) probably in a 3 state radius

    Ramon Rojas · April 6, 2013
  • Chris M

    This mall is so scary, they sell mace in the Hallmark Store

    Chris M · January 29, 2013
  • Kevin S.

    This mall is for those who cannot go anywhere else. For that reason the stores and the clientele are equally horrible.

    The food at the Food Court is fine but you might want to take it to go .

    William · November 1, 2012
  • Michelle K.

    If you've got an entire day to kill and want to shop, be sure to get here during the day. The Gallery closes really early!

    Free wifi only near McDonalds and Starbaks

    Just make sure when you go there to hit the top section, which is where five below, burlington coat factory, payless and old navy. That's my fav.

    The people who work here are extremely rude and ignorant. Only a few exceptions. Unacceotable

    Are there defibrillators here? Join the MyHeartMap challenge a Philadelphia project to raise heart disease awareness

    Don't even think to stop walking in the middle of the walkways. Just go from store to store. You'll be safe (at least on weekdays).

    Jeff Kessler · February 9, 2012
  • Wesley B.

    Fun place!

    Wesley Breaux · February 8, 2012
  • Durrock K.

    Despite ducking & hiding from all things ghetto, this mall is convenient. Be prepared for some scary customer service or people, but its a good place to find good deals & good eats on the lunch break.

    Durrock Knox · December 3, 2011
  • Darlene E.

    it's the Gallery, what can I say? lol

    Darlene Emanuel · October 13, 2011

    Fye is good here a lot to find

    chris longo · September 28, 2011
  • Caner G.

    Old building and a lot of unfashionable things are sold on stores.

    This place wreaks of poverty, section 8, & public school failure. Use the bathrooms if you enjoy little crabs crawling around your pubes. :-)

    I hate all the people but I like to walk around, especially if I have to wait for a train for 30 minutes or so.

    Jimmy Leahy · August 16, 2011
  • Zachariah S.

    Tough crowd and some people tend to be rude. Places like Gamestop and FYE have nice employees that are friendly.

    Zachariah Swope · July 21, 2011
  • Minteng C.

    Mostly old people, the homeless, and rowdy teenagers. Not many good stores. Can't go a block near The Gallery without some one asking you to pay for their "train fare". Pretty depressing place.

    Minteng Chen · June 25, 2011
  • April

    Get in, get wht u need & get out fast!!!

    Deal with the lack of classy and fashionable stores, and the prevalence of homeless people and belligerent teenagers.

    MEET FRIENDS AT THE FOOD COURT/ models is awesome

    The ghettoest mall. Go here only out of necessity, not choice.

    Dan Mosher · March 10, 2011
  • Kara N.

    Shop at five below if your awesome !

    Kara Napolitan · March 10, 2011
  • Concierge

    Be sure to stop by their welcome center on the lower level for mall maps, coupons, and info about Philadelphia!

    watch out for the youngsters in khaki pants. They are in high school.

    Christopher C. · January 7, 2011
  • Sparkaline K.

    Stop and see if they have free samples when shopping. That's fun.

    Sparkaline Kelly · November 12, 2010
  • Dave S.

    Get lost in their maze of escalators.

    Dave Sloboda · August 14, 2010
  • Chrissy M.

    listen to the fact that it's new wave and 80s college radio classics music piped in at the gallery--and laugh
