Bowlmor Lanes

Running around and knocking things over…indoors? These antics are encouraged at Bowlmor Lanes, the 42-lane downtown bowling alley with a candy-store vibe. Bright, primary colors are everywhere from the ceiling lights to the counter stools, and the music is great for a victory dance after that first strike. “[Bowling] is a good way to have a little competition, have a little fun, and know your kids are safe,” said Lindsay Carlton, Events and Public Relations Assistant at Bowlmor. Kids are welcome from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

110 University Place between 12th and 13th Streets, Manhattan

    PRIOR TO THE EXTENSIVE RENOVATION DONE IN 1997, BOWLMOR DID NOT HAVE THE MOST INVITING ATMOSPHERE. IT WAS A REMNANT OF THE OLD “BOWLING ALLEY” DAYS.

    HOWEVER, IT DID HOST THE WEEKLY EASTERN INTERCOLLEGIATE BOWLING LEAGUE BACK IN THE 1960’S AND 70’S. MOST ALL NYC COLLEGES PARTICIPATED
