Vintage arcade celebrates midcentury marvels



Beacon, New York’s Retro Arcade Museum opened its doors late last month. There, and for just $10 an hour, visitors can play curator Fred Bobrow’s collection of vintage pinball and arcade cabinets from the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

I suspect the handheld collection isn’t playable—as it’s behind glass—but, uh, it never hurts to ask? 🙁

    That is so cool. Thanks for spreading the word. Places like this are so rare, and definitely need the support people like us.

    I misread the “marvels” as “novels,” and now I am pretty disappointed to find my expectations of Updike or Kerouac baseless.
