BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The push to tear down Voelkers Bowling Center on Elmwood Avenue is hitting a speed bump.
The city’s preservation board voted against recommending demolition, Thursday night.
Preservation advocates cited the alley’s 130-year history in North Buffalo dating back to the Pan-American Exposition.
This is not the last chapter of this story — Thursday’s vote was an advisory only.
News 4 called Voelker’s Bowling Center for comment Thursday night, but it was closed.
