Fascinating Faber’s, the 50-year-old arcade that Thor Equities demolished last year, is rising from the dead — in another Thor Equities property. The Brooklyn Paper reported that Carlo Muraco, who has owned the arcade since the early 1990s, is subletting the first floor of space in a West 12th Street building owned by Joe Sitt’s Thor Equities. Joya Funding Group is leasing the space. Unlike the old location at Henderson’s Music Hall on Stillwell and Surf avenues, the new space will not display the famous “Faber’s Fascination” sign, but rather a vintage-styled “Faber’s Game World” sign. The arcade, which Nat Faber first opened in the 1960s, will feature a mix of classic arcade games and newer attractions, including Dance Dance revolution. The old space was part of 12.5 acres in Coney Island that Sitt snapped up in 2005 with the intention of building an indoor entertainment complex. He since sold seven acres to the city, which has pursued amusement park additions. [Brooklyn Paper]
