Fourth Street Bowl


#1 Jun 20, 2006
Property values have gone throught the roof and bowling alleys are slowly disappearing. I can remember when the Fourth Street Bowl opened back in the late fifties. My friends and I were paperboys at the time and we volunteered to help unpack the new bowling balls and place them on the racks. For that little bit of work, the management let us bowl free all evening. This was the first really nice bowling establishment in San Jose. We used to ride our bikes to the old Bridgeman's and San Jose bowling alleys in town before it opened. That entire end of town has changed dramatically so it seems change will soon eat up what's left of the old large bowling alleys. Sorry to see them go, they were a good outlet for young people once.
