Louis Marino founded Grandview Lanes in 1947, and the popular Grandview-Woodland bowling alley has been a family-run operation since its first years. Louis' grandaughter, Tammy Marino, manages the bowling alley today.

Tammy's father, George, remembers working as a pin-setter at the bowling alley after school. "We know couples who met here, and they're still together today," George told the Westender newspaper in 1997. "You'd find a different sort of people here than you would at the nightclubs."
