Today there is a Borders and a Bed, Bath, & Beyond there, but just a few years back that location at Interstate Shopping Center housed a movie theater and bowling at the Brunswick Interstate Lanes.
“Interstate Bowling Lanes. Inc partially opened a 40-lane bowling center in Ramsey. N. J. during October 1958.” (Source: SEC Digest, October 29th, 1958).
As it states on the postcard, enjoy the ultimate in air conditioning bowling design on 40 lanes with automatic ball returns and Tel-E-Score.
This wasn’t the town’s first bowling alley, from at least the 1920’s a bowling alley operated on Main Street in what has been more recently a carpet and rug store. The Ramsey Golf & Country Club also had a bowling alley, since converted into what is now the Pro Shop.
