Is the Berkshire Mall in a state of dilapidation where the only solution is to erect a fence around the entire thing?

Since its closure in 2019, the Berkshire Mall in Lanesborough has been rumored to reopen in some way shape or form leaving brick and mortar enthusiasts hopeful. But, let's face it, that's probably not gonna happen.

According to a recent article in the Berkshire Eagle, local town officials as well as the town's fire chief thinks something needs to be done soon for reasons concerning safety.

That’s necessary, the town says, to prevent people from entering the darkened mall. -berkshireeagle.com
