A Mall Disguised As A City?
"Walnut Creek [CA] is rich enough to have a branch of Tiffany & Co., small town enough to have folks who are uncynically excited about it... Early in the morning, the traffic was backed up outside the Bay Point Mall and myriad new developments in tasteful earth tones. It's hard to tell whether Walnut Creek is a city disguised as a mall, or a mall disguised as a city."
