Harlem Lanes Bowling Alley To Close Down
Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

Another black-owned Harlem business is closing.

DNA Info is reporting that popular Harlem bowling alley, Harlem Lanes, will be closing at the end of this week.

The news comes a few weeks after Hue-Man Bookstore, a popular Harlem bookstore, announced it was closing as well due to economic reasons.

General Manager Calvin Mumford told DNA Info that rising rents in his area and a slow summer season contributed to the closing.

They plan to sell any memorabilia to the public.
