Beacon NY, A Footloose Town for Arcades

Beacon, NY in Dutchess County recently shut down the Retro Arcade Museum because it had  pinball machines on the premises. Apparently pinball machines were outlawed back in the middle of the 20th century because law-makers thought pinball arcades were fronts for mob operations.

The current town council is trying to change these antiquated laws to allow the arcade to reopen.
