NEW YORK — After you take in the latest gallery showing and hit the newest restaurant hot spot, there is a unique stop that scores high.

In Manhattan’s Kip’s Bay neighborhood there is a shop dedicated to the silver ball. Steve Zahler opened Modern Pinball NYC two years ago, a place dedicated to plungers and playfields, spinners and skill shots.

“From the first moment you see it, it’s calling you,” Zahler said. “Pinball is a great game and wonderful pastime.”

If you’re looking for all the bells and whistles, they are here; Modern Pinball NYC showcases around 30 pinball machines from every era — no quarters needed. Instead, guests buy a time pass and simply swipe a card to play.

Zahler is simply trying to expose a new generation to the game he loves.

“We are on a serious mission to save pinball here,” he said. “And you don’t have to be a pinball wizard to appreciate it.”

After a few spirited games of “Games of Thrones” and “The Simpsons” arcade offerings, Jonathan Martell, a regular at Modern Pinball said, “You get this tactile experience that you don’t get with video games, you move the machine around, it’s a skill game.”
