There aren't many places to go slot car racing anymore. In fact, this might literally be the only place to do it left in Brooklyn. The Times reported on the spot a few years ago noting, "Slot cars, which drivers control with a hand-held throttle, go fast — some upward of 100 miles per hour — but getting them to that point demands slow, intensive, hands-on labor. Enthusiasts spend their free time taking the cars apart, tinkering with the motors, shaving down the tires for better balance and adjusting the gears." Amazingly, this place has stuck around for decades, despite competition from things like computers and video games. So go with a kid and indulge in a little bit of old Brooklyn. YOu won't regret it.
