Two developers are interested in reviving the Xanadu, oh wait that name is banned, I mean “Meadowlands” disaster. Why? From its opening in the 70s the Meadowlands has always been considered bad planning but who knew it could get worse? My 6 year old niece builds her Legos with a better layout than the geniuses that designed this complex. And who is the Mensa member that picked the 1970s style façade of Xanadu, especially the ski ramp? Am I the only one that gets the gag reflex when I drive by? Can you imagine what the rest of the country will think when they see that hideous ramp jutting into the sky as they show it on television during the Super Bowl in 2014? Jimmy Hoffa must be spinning in his old Giant Stadium end zone grave. And don’t get me started on the traffic. Let’s be honest. This is just going to be a big, ugly mall when it opens. Lots of soulless stores and garish advertising with people walking around like the zombies in Dawn of the Dead. Maybe they can get Snookie to cut the ribbon when it opens?
