Retro Arcade Museum, Beacon, New York
Right down the street from me, about a mile or so, there is a new interesting place tucked in with all of the art galleries- an arcade museum. Retro Arcade Museum, with playable games, something out of the 1970s, with "holographic racing". The only thing missing is carpets on the wall. Not the typical stuff you would expect to see in an arcade:
even old pinballs:

The one drawback of the museum, is it's in Beacon, New York. What's in Beacon, New York? Nothing. The DIA extension of the Museum of Modern Art, sure, but not much else. The minimum for groups is 15 for 2 hours at $9.95 per hour, while a good idea, it seems a bit much. But if you're from the area, in the area, or have a group of people who want something to do within 1 hour's drive of Beacon, NY, you may just want to check it out.
