Slide down the brick planter at NorthPark
Every kid knows that the best thing about NorthPark isn’t the endless parade of stores. The giant brick planters right outside the lower-level Neiman Marcus mall entrance make for a veritable indoor playground. They’re the perfect size, shape, and height for sliding. Adults might have to fight off their urchins for a turn—and keep an eye out for mall cops.  Photography by Elizabeth Lavin
