When you think about it, we actually have quite a few malls in the Capital Region and they've been changing to become more than just shopping centers. Well, people took notice because a few local ones made the list of the top 25 in Upstate New York.

Malls aren't what they used to be, they're more! They're not just for shopping, now there's more entertainment and so many more things to do. New York Upstate took data from Yelp using their star rating, volume of reviews and more and put together a list of the top 25 malls in Upstate New York. I was happy to see some of our local malls represented!

#10 - Stuyvesant Plaza, Albany [3.5 stars, 11 reviews]

#8 - Crossgates Mall, Albany [3.5 stars, 81 reviews]

#5 - Colonie Center, Colonie [3.5 stars, 38 reviews]

and not local, but in case you were curious about the top mall, rated by Yelp, in all of Upstate New York can be found near Rochester in Ontario County, Eastview Mall in Victor [4 stars, 53 reviews].
