MALL LOCATION

WHERE IS THE CUMBERLAN MALL

Re: MALL LOCATION

by zuriga

If you do a web search for Cumberland Mall, you'll find some information about the stores there. Vineland is not that big a town.. it shouldn't be difficult to find the Mall if you're there.

Re: Re: MALL LOCATION

by Rhondaj

Why do you want to go there? It's not the best mall in our area. really small.

Re: MALL LOCATION

by asturnut

Cumberland Mall is located just off route 55 on Delsea Drive (also called Route 47) exactly on the border of Millville and Vineland. Half of the mall lies in each town. Why in the world are you asking about the mall? Although it has improved greatly recently, it's still a dump! Better malls nearby are Hamilton Mall, Cherry Hill Mall and Deptford Mall.

Travel Tips for Vineland

Bring a spanish dictionary! ...

by asturnut

Bring a spanish dictionary! If you're shopping in town, especially around Landis Avenue, some of the proprietors of stores speak little or no English, especially at many of the small ethnic eateries.

Art Deco Landis Theatre

by asturnut

The Landis Theatre located in the Mori Brothers Building on the 800 block of Landis Ave is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The theatre, built in the 20's is in the "moderne" architectural style (read: Art Deco). Although it has been closed for a number of years now, I do have memories of it being open when I was a child. Only 3 blocks from where I grew up, it was a popular place for a night out for a family that had no car. I remember the last movie I saw there before they closed was "Lady Hawke." Ah... the memories.

Currently the Landis Theatre Redevelopment Corporation is fighting tooth and nail to raise the funds to restore the theater to it's former glory. There are many obstacles, not the least of which is thousands of dollars of back taxes. The objective is to someday to reopen as a community center. Let's home the dream becomes a reality in a town that is desperately in need of a community center downtown!

Swimming holes, sandwashes & more

by asturnut

There are also a lot of good (illegal) swimming holes (sandwashes) to swim at. In South Jersey, old sand quarries are abundant. They are dangerous* (see footnote) but fun, and most of them the water is very cold and clear. You must ALWAYS swim with a group in one of these places. There are drownings every year at these places because sandwashes are fed by underground springs. For this reason, the water is very cold in some spots and can paralyze you. Also, whirlpools also open up in these things at certain times of day and the current is very strong and can pull you under. Still they're fun if you aren't an idiot and swim with friends. They're fun places to swim, roast wienies on the fire and hang out on the beach and catch some rays.

One legal place to go is called 'Menantico.' It's actually located in Millville on Route 49. You're allowed to swim there, but boating, fishing and hiking. (If you are going boating there you MUST have a lifejacket-- park rangers are all over the place.)

***In 1999 the public awareness "Stay Out–Stay Alive" campaign was launched to warn people about the dangers of recreating at abandoned quarries and mines. To read more about the potential dangers of recreation and thrill seeking in these locations, please visit the MSHA website.

Vineland

"Vineland- The Basics"

Center city Vineland, full of huge old houses on tree lined streets, is where I grew up. Vineland, is a HUGE city, land-wise. It's the biggest city in New Jersey, almost 69 square miles. Because of its size, Vineland is a really strange place to live. It has a small town feel and there's not much to do. But if you travel from one end of town to the other (which takes about 40 minutes) you feel like you're traveling to another universe. Vineland has all kinds of industry, commerce and agriculture. All in all, it's a pretty dull place to live though.

Two things make Vineland interesting however. The first is the city's location. The proximity to several major cities and sites of interest is really wonderful. Vineland’s location creates easy access to world class restaurants, education, arts, entertainment and sports. Philadelphia via Route 55 is a short 45- minute drive. Atlantic City is 1 hour away, New York is about 3 hours, Baltimore is about 2 hours, and Washington DC is 3 hours. Vinelanders have the benefit of the proximity to the cities, but also enjoy miles of farms, forests and uncongested suburban sprawl and cheap real estate.

The second great thing about Vineland is the people. Vineland's people really make it a special place to live. Vineland and all of Cumberland County have always had a large contingent of immigrants who really add to the cultural landscape of the community. Vineland was the country's first planned community. The first settlers in Vineland were French, German and Russian. Charles Landis, the town founder advertised an appeal to Italian immigrants by creating a community within Vineland called "Little Italy". He billed his new town as a chance to begin a new life of opportunity. The most recent wave of immigrants come from Puerto Rico and smaller numbers of people from Central and South America. There is also a significant population of Mexican migrant farm workers in the county. As a result of the number of Latinos in the community, Spanish is heard as often as English on the streets and in our classrooms. We also have small populations of Greek, Russian, Turkish, Chinese and Indian immigrants. Our community is culturally enriched as a result and there are many activities centered on celebrating the cultural heritage of these groups, as well as clubs, restaurants and churches.

The downside of the situation is unfortunately many newcomers have difficulty finding living-wage jobs because they arrive under-educated and with a language barrier. As a result we have a lot of problems associated with urban living. Vineland has a high rate of unemployment, a median household income of only about $40,000, only 68% of our population have a high school education or greater, and we have one of the highest teen-pregnancy and HIV infection rates in the country. Fortunately, in recent years there have been well-organized efforts to educated and mobilize the populations in our area that are struggling. Urban empowerment zones (3% sales tax), state grants, new schools, and locally motivated community improvement plans are moving Vineland into the future with brighter prospects.

"Vineland- Some Trivia"

And for a little bit of trivia, here's a few items of interest about about Vineland:
1. Welch's Grape Juice started here in Vineland. To quote the Welch's website: "The modern-day fruit juice industry began in 1869 in the Vineland, New Jersey, home of Dr. Thomas Bramwell Welch, where he and his son Charles processed the first bottles of "unfermented wine" for use with the communion service at their church." Vinyards used to be abundant in this area (hence the name Vine-land.) Ultimately and unfortunately a blight struck the vinyards here and they were abandoned.
2. The founder of our town (who also founded Landisville and Sea Isle City), Mr. Charles Landis was the first person in the United States to use the plea of insanity when he killed someone.
3. Agriculture and fresh produce is a big part of our economy, culture and cuisine in Vineland.
-Vineland is home of the Dandelion Festival which celebrates the Dandelion as a foodstuff.
-Vineland is the home of Vineland Produce Auction, known by locals as "the Block." The auction is the largest of it's kind on the east coast.
- Once upon a time, Vineland was considered the "Egg Basket of America". Thank goodness those days are gone, because the stench from the remaining poultry farms is unbearable. I can't imagine a town full of them.
4. And finally, probably the oddest bit of trivia about Vineland... Vineland is the home of the Palace of Depression (featured in the movie Eddie and the Cruisers.) During the Great Depression a wacky hobo came up the the interesting idea to build his home out of junk. It was a tourist attration for a long time. Unfortunately when said hobo George Daynor died, the house was vandalized and the city eventually razed most of the structures on the property. There is currently an active group in the process of rebuilding the palace.
