Slot Car Racing In Brooklyn
By James Grahame
Dave Clausen writes, "I posted some photos and wrote up a little blog post about my visit to Buzz-A-Rama, a 1960's era slot car joint in Brooklyn. What better way to spend a hot, humid Sunday Brooklyn afternoon than checking out Buzz-A-Rama, a 1960’s era slot car parlor in Kensington?
Inside this unassuming storefront are 4 or 5 large twisting tracks, where children and adults race cars about 3 inches wide by 6 inches long, much larger than the matchbox-sized slot cars I played with as a kid. Amateurs like us use slow cars rented from Buzz. The pros, however, bring their own custom lightning-fast cars and controllers, and they are quite serious about them."
