It takes up two floors of what used to be the reporters' desks for The New York Times, which ceased to be made at that location in 2007. Anyway, this is NOT the old bowling alley down the street, folks. This is an all out entertainment mecca for bowlers of all skill levels and interest.
Like most bowling alleys you have to rent shoes ($6.75 for the night), but the balls are interesting... there are probably 2 dozen at each pair of lanes of all different weights - green balls, for example, are all 12 pounders. But what makes them interesting is that once you know what weight you want, you have a choice on each ball of where to put your fingers. There are two sets of three holes on each ball, small, medium and large! Once you get used to it, the bowling itself is as fun and challenging (if not more so) as anyplace you've ever been.
