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 August 2017) plays like 1976 all
over again. What a wonderful pinball machine. Pinrescue
purchased a new old stock original playfield a number of
years ago. We held on to it for an over the top restore
and here it is installed in this rare New York pinball
machine completed August 2017.
Pinrescue is very proud to offer one of the
most desirable multiplayer pinball games ever created.
Super popular and very 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 really 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.
