2. Next Level Arcade

“When Chinatown Fair shut its doors, NYC was left without an arcade in the early-’90s mold: a video-game dungeon where practiced hands could battle via fighting games like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat.Thankfully, a new venue has opened up to fill the void: Next Level Arcade. The Sunset Park space is equipped with nine cabinets that focus on head-to-head button-mashers such as Street Fighter IV and Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Consoles like Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 are set up to play contemporary titles, which can be selected from Next Level’s extensive library. Tourneys for hard-core players are held Wednesday nights at 6pm.”
