With ‘Water World Amusements,’ Essex Street Gains Another Arcade
Gather your spare change, the most unlikely contender for Essex Street commercial retail is now plugged in and turned on.
Water World Amusements, a new arcade, just opened at 35 Essex Street (near Hester). It’s the second such game room within five blocks. However, unlike the five-year-old Two-Bits Retro Arcade up the bend, this game palace affords plenty of space for large cabinet games like air hockey, The Walking Dead, the Boxer punching bag, and Dance Super Station.
There are also money-stealing classics like the claw.
