This is the site of the Holiday Bowl, which was popular among Blacks and Japanese and helped desegregate L.A. by providing a multiracial place for socializing and bowling. Holiday Bowl was demolished in 2003 and the site is now a sporting goods store. There is a website dedicated to the Holiday Bowl. 3730 South Crenshaw Blvd., Los Angeles.
