McLean Bowl-O-Drome

back  McLean Bowl-O-Drome, Nereid Ave., Bronx, NY, 1988  next

The McLean Bowl-O-Drome was a bowling alley in Yonkers, New York. It opened at 942 Mclean Avenue in 1942. The Bowl-O-Drome changed its name to the McLean Bowling Center in 1986, and then closed for business in the early 1990's.

Between the time of this image (Feb. 1988) and the next time I visited the sign (Jan. 2001) the words "8 blocks west on" from the directions "8 blocks west on McLean Ave, Yonkers" were erased. Were there complaints from those who walked the 8 blocks from Nereid Ave., the Bronx to McLean Ave., Yonkers and didn't find the bowling alley?
