Chelsea Piers sports complex offers endless fun for kids and their families with spaces for golfing, swimming, rock climbing, skateboarding—you name it. 300 New York at Chelsea Piers offers all the fun without the work. “Bowling on. Brain off” is its motto. It’s a great place to host birthday parties for kids with colorful flashing lights, catering services, and loud music blasting all day. Raegan Moya-Jones takes her girls there on “dreary winter days” in an effort to tire them out. If you’re more serious about bowling, you could opt for a private lesson. But, as they say, “no matter what the occasion, it’s always more fun when you’re in bowling shoes.” After 10pm, though, certain sorts of occasions are celebrated more than others, considering that's when the lights go down, the alcohol comes out, and no one under the age of 21 is allowed to bowl without a parent present.
