1976 Gottlieb's 2
player "New York" Patriotic pinball at
its best! Very Rare add a ball version of Gottlieb’s
wildly popular Spirit of 76/Pioneer.
Historically significant pinball machine
Gottlieb only made 300 of these machines celebrating the
return of pinball to NYC. They made an incredible 10,300
Spirits of 76, a huge 3,625 Pioneers and a paltry 300
New York’s. Very rare pinball machine freshly restored
In 1942 then Mayor Fiorello La Guardia banned
pinball in NYC ordering city police to smash any
machines they found. In a Supreme Court affidavit La
Guardia wrote “Pinball is a racket dominated by
interests heavily tainted with criminality which robbed
the pockets of school children of nickel and dimes given
them as lunch money”

Gottlieb's tribute to America's Bicentennial
and the return of pinball to New York City. New York is
a family friendly machine with the Saturn Rocket, Daniel
Boone, Neil Armstrong, The Spirit of St Louis and the
Lunar Lander on the backglass. Professionally restored
mechanically (completed Sept 2016) plays like 1976 all
over again. What a wonderful pinball machine.
Pinrescue is very proud to offer one of the
most desirable multiplayer pinball games ever created.
Super popular rare New York sister machine to the more
common Spirit of 76 and Pioneer. We cannot keep these
Pioneers/Spirit of 76's in stock I’m sure New York will
find a happy home. Some TV shows that premiered in 1976
when this New York was new were "Charlie's Angels"
"Family Feud" and "The Bionic Woman". If you have always
wanted a vintage classic pinball machine don't wait
another 40 years or they all may be gone.
