This special section of Roadside Peek contains photos of roadside
attractions in the Northeast. Roadside Peek East originated from the extensive
and unique roadside photo collection of Mark Hackett and his sidekick
Steve Felder. Now, let's sneak a peek at the East and some of its places
of interest. And yes, don't forget to check back here from time to time
to see these roadside treasures.

Yes, walk-in theatres are a mainstay of the roadside. These single-screeners
often exhibit lavish accommodations. However, other theatre's idea of
lavish settings may be an extra-large cupholder. Check out Theatre
East for a look-see.
Yes, bowling alleys are everywhere. But here at the millennium, these
venerable wooden alleys are starting to slowly roll by the wayside. Some
of the best signage around is found at a ten-pin alley. Stop by Ten
Pin Alley East and enjoy a look at how bowling is done in the East.
