Geocache Description:

Listed coordinates are for the "Boys Gate," one of the gated entrances to Central Park. Each gate was named by Olmsted and Vaux, the park's designers, for the type of person they anticipated entering the park from that area. The cache is not there, but is a short walk away.

Like the girls at the Girls Gate I've based this puzzle on the games of young boys. But unlike those 19th century girls I've come into the future to the games that I spent many a day playing. So grab your NES controller and let's play! As to the difficulty rating for this puzzle I've chosen the middle of the road option because if you know the code this one will be easy, but if you don't it might take you 30 lives to figure out. Maybe we'll have some video-game converts after this.

You may assume the 40/73.
