You have to hit Baybrook at the right time to get the maximum pedestrian value out of it, but if you do, there's no finer walking arena in the city. (No point trying this on a Saturday afternoon.) It takes two laps around to walk a mile and the building is unlocked at 7 a.m., leaving a full three hours before the stores open. Baybrook can draw a healthy crowd during those hours (or it can be empty), but these people are there to exercise and not socialize, and so the air of stillness inside can rival that of a mausoleum or cathedral. Especially compared to the chaotic construction atmosphere outside — the extensive renovations are projected to be complete by the holidays — walking inside Baybrook can be a religious experience, no lie. Get in the zone, and it feels like you could walk until your legs fall off...or the shoppers show up.
