The original Mermaid Arcade was in Babbage Square, then was rebuilt to the familiar white colonades when Port Babbage. It was last of the 3 original "front row" builds on the old Port Babbage, where it stood for over 3 years. Many residents recall getting their start by renting out a shop in the 2 story arcade. The interior had the feel of old walking malls of the late 19th century. Changes within Second Life that made outlet shops and commercial land less of a necessity than in the early years, combined with the slagging real world economy of the early 10's, brought the gates of the Arcade to a close in December of 2011.

OOCNotes:
In Auckland, New Zealand, there is a walking mall under Central Backpackers hostel that looks remarkably like the interior of Mermaid Arcade, as has been noted by Viv Trafalgar and Mosseveno Tenk.
