That tank is an M3 Stuart. I remember seeing it from time to time, since we were rarely down that way, Probably needs some love.

I remember Times Square, it was pretty damn good, but the one in the Century Mall was in the basement and even better. More moody. Better for the TRON games too.

My brother worked and got fired from there. My mom used to take me and I hated going, but they had a candy counter where I first had Swedish fish. I remember they always had a nice soft tone ringing from time to time throughout the store. Never remember why though...

My grandpa worked there and it was my dads first job. At 81 years, that man still knows how to sharpen a knife razor sharp, and can cut a chicken or ANYTHING professionally. I'm a Norsider too, and it was pretty nasty, but it was fun to poke around if you had a good eye. I can still smell it. eck.

Oh boy, do I remember this one vividly. I LOVED Dr. Jazz. Ok- once you walked in the left door, you turned right, and to your right was a game where you had to take the wand and follow a wiggly wire and you couldn't touch or it'd buzz. A drunk tester so to speak. Then near the center where the main door" that was trapezoid shaped was the 1920's crane game. there were white little tables
