The blizzard of 2013 dealt a cruel blow to a popular bowling alley on Long Island.

The center portion of the roof of AMF Smithtown Lanes collapsed under the weight of the heavy snow.

Thankfully, no one was inside the building when the roof gave way on Saturday afternoon.  It was closed because of the storm.

Bowlers who stopped by were shocked and saddened to see the destruction of the place where they’ve enjoyed so many good times.

“When I was younger, I used to have birthday parties here,” recalled Kirsten Bond of St. James.  “It’s just a shame something like this happened.”
