CLOSINGS: Next Level Going to the Next Level

Next Level Arcade which moved into Sunset Park after relocating from Chinatown is soon to close. It's next relocation is said to be somewhere outside the neighborhood.  The arcade moved into Sunset Park in 2011 and lasted four years in the nabe. As with everything else the one constant is that the neighborhood is subject to change, constant change. During the period that it was open Film maker Calvin Theobald has been filming the goings on for a documentary. Below is the brief preview on Youtube.

Calvin Theobald is also responsible for the documentary "King of Chinatown" which follows the goings on of a gamer who frequented the previous incarnation of Next Level as the Gaming Parlor "Chinatown Fair". The documentary below is from YouTube.
