Woodside bowling alley undergoes a facelift

Jan. 5, 2017 By Hannah Wulkan

An old Woodside bowling alley is getting a new look.

The former AMF 34th Avenue Lanes bowling alley is undergoing a makeover and will be rebranded as Bowlero Queens later this month.

The bowling alley, located at 69-10 34th Avenue, will be updated to match the more upscale Bowlero brand, which acquired AMF in 2013. The company now operates almost 300 bowling alleys throughout the country.

The updated space will have new arcade games and a new menu, and will launch with a grand opening on January 19.

With 28,000 square feet of floor space, Bowlero will have 35 lanes with black light bowling and video graphics, an arcade, a sports bar and a lounge.

The rebranding includes a brand new “Go Crazy” menu, features specialties such as a five-pound, 14 inch burger called the “Behemoth Burger,” a two-foot hotdog, and desserts like the S’mores Skillet. The sports bar will also serve specialty cocktails.

Following the grand opening, the bowling alley will be open Monday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 12 a.m., Fridays from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
