  • It really does take us there and illustrate why this place mattered to so many people. It made me want to go find some quarters and head down to the arcade myself.

  • art scrappy, part sweet and wholly enjoyable, "The Lost Arcade" is a love letter to a vanished piece of New York, and a little wish for the future.
