Maple Lanes closed down and Brooklynites keep asking me where they can go bowling in Brooklyn. Who knew that bowling was so popular! Here’s where you can bowl in Brooklyn:
2)Melody Lanes Bowling Alley 461 37th Street Brooklyn 11232 718-832-2695
Melody Lanes is probably closest to how Maple Lanes was – the place is not updated – it’s also not as cheap as you think it will be either.
3) Shell Lanes – 1 Bouck Ct Brooklyn 11223 718-336-6700
This bowling alley is old like Melody Lanes. When the place looks empty the lanes are actually reserved so call ahead and reserve your lane.
4) Lane 8 at Fort Hamilton Army Base 124 Wainwright Drive Brooklyn 11252 718-630-4440
Very cheap bowling $3.00 Even cheaper at lunchtime Monday to Friday – $1.50 a game Shoe rental $1.50 Bring ID with you to get on the Army base. *People have children’s birthday parties here because it is so inexpensive.
5) Strike 10 Lanes – 6161 Strickland Avenue Brooklyn 11234 718-763-6800
I have never been to this bowling alley, but St. Francis College students play there and they love it. This place is like the others – older okay lanes. $4.50 a game (see prices)
