A bowling alley will be opening in Hunters Point, about half a block away from LIC Bar.
The alley will be located at 10-22 46th Ave., on a site that was previously used for manufacturing.
This will be the only bowling venue in Long Island City, with residents who are interested in bowling often having to go to Brooklyn, Manhattan or Astoria.
Nikitas Drakotos, the owner of the 46th Avenue property, said the alley is likely to open in about six months and will be run by an operator with other bowling venues in the city. He was unable to say which one.
The 15,000-square-foot site is currently being converted into the alley, which will come with an eatery.
Drakotos filed for a building permit for the alley on Oct. 22.
