Incorporated in 1871, the village of Arcade in Wyoming County, New York houses roughly 2,000 inhabitants, including Mayor Paul Burkett, village clerk Pam Beiersdorf, and whatever uncredited third grader designed this site.

True to the modern-era implications of the village's name, the Arcade page looks like a video game, albeit of the early-'80s educational variety. Animated GIFs lend the fire department and justice court the dignity they deserve. Passers-through would be wise to avoid speeding tickets and other municipal infractions, lest they run afoul of caricatured police officers and end up incarcerated in a broadly sketched jail cell with a masked cartoon burglar.
