The original 9-block-long complex, as it was configured at the time of its August 1973 grand opening. It was conceived as the first phase of an eventual criss-cross layout mall.

At the far end of the North Wing stood the aforementioned Macy's. Here we see said store's mallway entry, which faced a recessed fountain.

A well-known Chicago-centric chain anchored the South Wing of STATEN ISLAND MALL. This store's interior entry faced an octagonal water feature.

An early 1980s renovation added this "Dancing Waters" fountain to the mall's Center Court.
