Robert writes (in an email entitled “Pinball Wizardy”):
There is a makeshift pinball arcade set up in the car impound lot on Franklin btwn Eagle and Dupont. You must check this out.
I’ll be upfront: I found this very difficult to believe. So I headed to the location of the purported pinball parlor without delay.
It’s for real.
I spoke to the owner of this establishment about his new side business. He told me he brought the machines in for the enjoyment of “the guys” because “you only live once”. I was also assured kids of all ages are more than welcome to come by and play. TIP: the “Grand Slam” machine will only set you back 25 cents a game!
Only in Greenpoint, folks.
