Beloved NYC Arcade Chinatown Fair Closes...For Now

Beloved NYC Arcade Chinatown Fair Closes...For Now

Sadly, the rumors that started circulating a couple of weeks ago have come true: Chinatown Fair has closed. The Mott Street institution catered to hardcore gamers for over 30 years, and was known for attracting fighting aficionados who wanted to test their mettle against kindred spirits in titles Street Fighter IV, and Marvel vs. Capcom 2.  The good news is, it looks like the arcade will be relocating to a new home in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, but for those who loved the cramped sweaty arcade with the blood-red walls and the onetime tic-tac-toe-playing chicken, it’s unfortunately game over.
