Aqueduct Casino Opens Today; Subway Skybridge To Be Finished In Dec.

Posted by JayZeeBMT on Fri Oct 28 06:12:58 2011

Casino gambling arrives in NYC today at 1 PM, when the Aqueduct 'Racino' opens to the public. The new venue will be able to accomodate 5,000 visitors, who can play 2,000 electronic "table games" like roulette, and 2,300 video slot machines. The casino area includes restaurants, a bar, and when Phase 2 of the project is completed in December, a new skybridge will connect the (A) line to the casino. Eventually, a hotel is planned for the casino, along with more restaurants and 2,515 more slots, and an "event space" for shows and conventions.

Given Aqueduct's close proximity to JFK Airport, and the fact that it already has direct subway service, this could be a real economic boost for Ozone Park--and the rest of the city. Could this be a harbinger of more Rockaway (A) service to meet growing demand?
