  • Queens Archery
    Each day, sports persons enter a brick fa?ade on 39th Avenue with bow cases and leather quivers slung over their shoulders. Queens Archery was founded in 1967 and remains a clubhouse for the city's archers, offering a practice range, opportunity for organized competition, and a pro shop that stocks all manner of gear for the sport with a small but passionate following. In recent years, interest in the age-old discipline has surged?in part due to the popularity of the bow-and-arrow-wielding characters in The Hunger Games series?bringing an influx of beginners eager to learn the sport to Queens Archery. In addition to the resident eagle-eyed veterans, the facility is home to a coterie of young archers who take part in the Junior Olympic Archery Development program. The JOAD program is administered by Columbia University archery coach Al Lizzio and certified teacher Erin Vecino, who help youths cultivate the sharp eye and steady pull necessary to be competitive-level archers.

During each two-hour session, participants create a 16?x20? reproduction of the night's chosen artwork while sipping a beer, mixed drink, or glass of wine purchased from the bar. Paint Nite supplies all other materials, including paint and brushes, canvases, easels, and aprons. They even supply a local artist who guides participants through each step of the painting process, such as choosing a color palette.

  • Jib Lanes
    Teeth-brushing, breakfast, and bowling. For anyone who takes advantage of Jib Lanes' early opening at at 9 a.m. 365 days a year, this could just be a typical start to a great day. But it's not the only time for bowling lovers to get in on the action. The alley's 48 lanes also host birthday parties, seasonal theme weeks, and cosmic bowling set to Top 40 hits on the weekends. It also helps that Brunswick Vector scorekeepers stay on top of who's winning so that players can reserve their math skills for important things like calculating how many square feet of ice cubes can fit in a friend's bowling bag. The center's automatic bumpers make outings with little ones easier, and at the full-service cafe and lounge, bowlers take breaks with pals over drinks and snacks.

    Groups of tourists walk past the current dwelling places of some of the area’s notable residents, such as Addison Cairns Mizner, Paul Ilyinsky, and Henry Morrison Flagler. Unlike the case with traditional celebrity-sighting tours, however, all of these men died decades ago. Their spooky hauntings frame the path of Ghosts of Palm Beach’s walking tours, during which knowledgeable guides share local folklore and paranormal encounters. Stops can include everything from Palm Beach Town Hall to high-fashion shops such as Gucci, Chanel, and Saks Fifth Avenue, where the ghosts still try to buy handbags for a dollar and two bits.
