A year after Chinatown Fair Arcade shut its doors and moved to Sunset Park, Bowery Boogie gets wind that the arcade will reopen May 5 at 8 Mott Street under new management. The arcade’s signature grime will be conspicuously absent (it’s getting a paint job as we speak) and it’ll sport some shiny new pinball machines — no concrete word thus far on the status of the tic-tac-toe chicken.
