Game Over for ‘Water World Amusements’ Arcade on Essex Street
Much like the movie of same, Water World Amusements unceremoniously sunk.
The arcade, which opened just over a year ago at 35 Essex Street, is no more. Gaming cabinets remain locked in the dark retail space, while leasing signage dominates the store marquee.
That this game room failed to hit is not a shock. Water World was often dry with regard to customers.
The space at 35 Essex Street previously housed a flooring warehouse. The other half of the footprint is occupied by Delancey Wines, which previously relocated from up the block.
