The core area of our neighborhood used to feature a movie theater and at least one bowling alley. As interests changed and business models evolved, the businesses featured below were shuttered. It is unknown if either business would be successful in today's marketplace of Xbox 360 and home theater systems. But an community-oriented entertainment element to the neighborhood would likely be welcome.
