One of the joys of the Holidays is the warm sense of the season you get from visiting the Paddock Arcade during the holidays. The indoor shopping area is nicely decorated by the dedicated tenants and with a a couple of eateries, a bar and a coffee shop there is opportunity to sit and enjoy the Arcade.
I remember the excitement when I was involved in opening the Paddock Club in 1999 and while the building has had its ups and downs, it presently is doing well and gradual improvements will make it even better.
If you look at that section of Downtown circa 1998 and compare to now, its much better.
Granted the Woolworth building still looms, but it was much worse not long ago.
