Tape Land 14 – NYC 2002 – Times Sq. Arcades (Feb. 2002)

49:24 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I will be presenting the audio of a cassette tape from my collection. It’s a way to help motivate me to digitize more of my archives.

It was my first time back to the World Trade Center area since 9/11. I started off in lower Manhattan, and walked up along the Hudson River, to the World Financial Center, still being repaired. Later in the tape, I explore classic video game arcades in Times Square – visiting Laser Park and Broadway City Arcade – and talking about many other now long-lost landmarks of the area. Also on the tape are ambient sounds of commuting, notes on my Obliviana project (which would come to an end a year later), and much more… Recorded Feb 1-4, 2002.
