No Strike Yet For Former Bowling Alley [Empty in Westhampton-Hampton Bays]

A series, asking readers their thoughts on empty buildings in Westhampton-Hampton Bays.

At one time, the sounds of pins being knocked down engulfed 87 Sunset Avenue in Westhampton Beach. Now, the building that formerly housed the Westhampton Beach Bowling Alley sits silent, idly awaiting a new occupant. 

In 2010, there were plans to renovate the building, which is owned by Sunset West, LLC of New York City, and construct two commercial spaces next door, however, according to the Westhampton Beach Village Building Department those plans are no longer on the table.

The building is not currently on the market.

Patch would like to know: What type of busines would you like to see move into this location?

My understanding is it must stay recreational. I am in full support of a bowling center (alley is the individual lane, a center houses alleys) as I travel weekly to Patchogue and Riverhead to bring my boys bowling.

Bowling Alley. Let's do something for the kids in our community!

Something should be done for the kids, but one wonders why the owners of bowling centers such as WHB and on 58 in Riverhead haven't opened their facilities. They would make a fortune in short order from their profits if the support for a bowling alley on this blog is an indication that huge numbers of paying customers would consistently to patronize them.

Unfortunately bowling alleys are no longer profitable...we have to wait for bowling to come back in fashion and that will probably be a long time...Owners have to be more creative...

Come on - think out of the box. Bowling alleys are profitable when entertainment is involved. Combine the bowling with retail, or other forms of entertainment that involves kids.
