by PhilExile Wed Oct 13, 2010 7:32 pm

You should interview Bob of the former Retro Arcade Museum. The story deserves more attention in the community:

Former, as in closed unjustly by the city of Beacon. Read the NYTimes article that I've also linked in the post above.

It would be great to get the story out to more people - unfortunately, its too late to save the arcade....

The proprietor is very nice and knowledgeable. His contact information is available on the website.

Also - LODGE COMPLAINTS WITH THE CITY OF BEACON - I did and when I called they admitted plainly that they used this old law to shut the guy down for no reason more than bureaucratic ignorance. Below is their address and telephone number - give them hell.

f: (845) 838-5012

Also, here are some more photos of the arcade:
