With the 2009 opening of Williamsburg’s luxe, LEED-certified Brooklyn Bowl, Mr. Shapiro changed a sport and a neighborhood in one pass. The Bowl had a glammy 600-seat music venue, a restaurant and 16 lanes of over-21 fun, paving the way for the Wythe Hotel and numerous other local upgrades. World domination was inevitable: London and Vegas now have their own Brooklyn Bowls. Strike!
