Subject: buy new bowling ball in NYC
I want to buy a bowling ball as a gift, so i want to find a place in
NYC that actually sells them (as opposed to an online joint) so she can
pick out the right size and color and have the holes drilled (they do
that, right?)

so is there any where in NYC to buy bowling balls?

How many BOWLING CENTERS are there in NYC? chances are ANY ONE OF THEM
has a Pro Shop where you can get a ball, get it fitted and get it
drilled on the same day.

While you're at it, get her a BAG, SHOES, and TOWEL at the same time.
FWIW, many bowling centers have "starter kits" (bag, polyester ball,
basic shoes, MAYBE some "goodies": powder bag, etc.) for around $100
which inclues fitting and drilling.

However, BEWARE those Shoperators who try and pressure the customer
into buying "The Latest And Greatest" ball, etc. - if you encounter
one, politely say "no thank you" and go elsewhere.

Hope this helps. :)
