Bowling Alley

Bowling Alley
Santa Bataglia and Mrs. Reilly went bowling a couple of times throughout the book, and at one point, Mrs. Reilly calls the bowling alley by name. She calls it Fazzio’s, which is a bowling alley in Harvey, LA. That’s on the opposite side of the Mississippi River and wouldn’t be the place Mr. Reilly was talking about.
There used to be a Fazzio’s on North Rampart St., but I’m not sure exactly where it was located. There are many buildings that could have housed it, but there isn’t one there today.

  1. Fazzio's used to be at 1301 N. Rampart St. The building was built in 1926 and was originally the Colonial Home Furnishing Company. By the 1950's it was a 3 level bowling alley and the building is now home to new condos.
