In few weeks, I'll leave for the Big Apple  Kiss

I've already been there few years ago... but I wasn't as crazy as today regarding 'ArcadeLifeStyle' way of live  roll eyes Wink Tongue Grin

So, any good advices ?

I've already booked tickets for the One Women Show's Carrie Fisher 'Wishful Drinking' on Broadway ... ok this is not really ArcadeLifeStyle.. but... it's Star Wars stuff, so it counts for me  Tongue  Grin

Other than the usual sites to see in NYC, (Times Square, Statue Of Liberty, Ground Zero etc)  I don't know of any Arcade Lifestyle places to visit, but you never know... There might be a Joystix equivalent there..  Have fun!   Cheesy

I absolutely agree with Etienne. If at all possible go to Funspot.

It is the Mekka for us arcade game collectors. It's where world records are set each year. It's the BIGGEST collection of classic arcade videogame in the world.

I know you will NOT regret it Cheesy

Bruno, when you go to Funspot, first print out this (at home) and clip the coupon out:

http://www.funspotnh.com/mws-coupon.htm

Then, go to the cash register near the bowling alley, and you get an extra 50 free coins when you pay $20 !!!!!

That means for only $20,- you get 150 tokens !!! All the classics are only 1 token per game !

That is 13,40 with current rates. That means 0,09 per game !!!!!!
