When you first enter Disneyland, in California, or the Magic Kingdom, in Florida, a charming train station sets elevated before you, like a curtain concealing a stage-show floor. Walk through a tunnel under a station to find vibrant posters displayed like coming attractions banners at a theater. Then set foot on Main Street, U.S.A., an idealized Victorian-era town filled with bright colors, upbeat melodies, and mouthwatering smells. Here, your eyes finally meet the grand view at the end of the street: a stunning castle, filled with the promise of adventures beyond. Keen observers will notice intricate details throughout the Disney parks "including names emblazoned on the building windows lining Main Street, U.S.A. Designed as calling cards of fictionalized shopkeepers, these names belong to the real life all-stars of those who helped turn Walt Disney s theme park vision into a reality. They are the opening credits to a show like no other. The names honored on these widows belong to skilled actors, artists, business leaders, Imagineers, songwriters, and more. Each person has contributed their imagination, skills, and discipline to the Disney parks and in doing so has made an important contribution to The Walt Disney Company. In fact, it s no surprise that many of them have also received the impressive Disney Legends award. Windows on Disney s Main Street, U.S.A.: Stories of the Talented People Honored at the Disney Parks offers a field-guide experience to better understand who are the people behind the names. Through short biographies and key imagery, this expertly-researched volume is sure it intrigue and inspire any dreamer to go out and do.

As an archetype for an entire class of places, Main Street has become one of America's most popular and idealized images. In Main Street Revisited, the first book to place the design of small downtowns in spatial and chronological context, Richard Francaviglia finds the sources of romanticized images of this archetype, including Walt Disney's Main Street USA, in towns as diverse as Marceline, Missouri, and Fort Collins, Colorado. Francaviglia interprets Main Street both as a real place and as an expression of collective assumptions, designs, and myths; his Main Streets are treasure troves of historic patterns. Using many historical and contemporary photographs and maps for his extensive fieldwork and research, he reveals a rich regional pattern of small-town development that serves as the basis for American community design. He underscores the significance of time in the development of Main Street's distinctive personality, focuses on the importance of space in the creation of place, and concentrates on popular images that have enshrined Main Street in the collective American consciousness.

Since the construction of the first fully enclosed shopping center in 1952, the shopping mall has evolved into the heart of many suburban areas across the United States. More than simply a place to purchase goods, this veritable “temple of consumerism” has become a primary place for community and social interaction and an essential element in many citizens’ day-to-day lives. This study explores the spiritual, emotional and physical effects of the enclosed shopping mall on the public, chronicling the growth of the mall, its role in shaping urban and suburban life, its positive and negative impacts on society and the environment, and its future viability. As this work shows, the mall remains rich in symbolic influence, and in many ways mirrors the American condition.
