MORE FUCKING BULLSHIT THAT DOES NOT HELP THE COMMUNITY: RESORTS WORLD EXPANDS AND BREAKS GROUND ON SO-CALLED 4 STAR HOTEL, WHICH WILL MORE THAN LIKELY BECOME A HOMELESS SHELTER

MORE LIES from our elected officials of how Resorts World expansion will improve the area. The propaganda photo below looks like the usual political clowns who have no idea how to hold a shovel or what to do with it. They might want to trying shoveling all the BULLSHIT that comes out of their mouths.

As people in the area who know the area well and KNOW THE TRUTH, have made such comments as:

JQ LLC from the dirty southeast says:
Since the RW opened has seen the proliferation of pawn shops and the conversion of motels and hotels in the area to shelters.

 

Anonymous said…This gambling den has ruined many Queens lives who gambled their savings away. Sorry QB Pres Katz, Resorts Casino is NOT good for Queens families. Also take a look at the surrounding area. No improvements as promised by Resorts. It’s turned into another depressed part of NYC.

So Katz, if this is SO GREAT, why not put one in Forest Hills or Long Island City.

IF all these things are go great, like this shit, hotels turned into homeless shelters, drug clinics, waste dumps, etc, why don’t any of the elected officials have such things in their immediate communities where they live. Hypocrites, just like the Republican elected officials who want to push through Trump’s crap healthcare and talk about how great it is, but want to keep their excellent government healthcare they get.

Democrats, Republicans, different sides of the same coin, shit and more shit.

Resorts World breaks ground on four-star hotel in South Ozone Park

More than 100 people sat under a tent outside the Resorts World Casino’s lot in the humid 90 degree weather Thursday for a groundbreaking that ushered in a major new chapter for the complex.

The city’s only casino, which opened its doors in South Ozone Park just six years ago, announced the $400 million expansion will include a 400-room hotel, and additional space for gaming, dining, entertainment and retail. It is scheduled to be completed mid-2019.

 The nearly 480,000-square-foot development is projected to generate $200 million in economic activity, produce about 3,000 union construction jobs, and create over 1,000 more jobs within the facilities, according to Resort World President Scott Molina.

The new four-star hotel will include five-star suites. One of the four new dining outlets will be comprised of a signature restaurant with an innovative dining concept from a celebrity chef, according to Molina.

“The project will allow us to soar to new heights and stay true to our core mission, be an economic engine to the local community and New York state,” Molina said.

Resorts World, located at 110 Rockaway Blvd., employs more than 1,100 people, 60 percent of whom are from Queens. It is located near JFK Airport and has 10 million customers per year, Molina said.

Since opening, the casino has donated $1.9 billion to New York State’s Lottery Education Fund.

State Sen. Joseph Addabbo (D-Howard Beach), who lives half a mile from the casino, was pleased about what Resorts has already accomplished and is looking forward to the expansion.

“It paved the way for over 1,000 jobs, nearly $2 billion in education and $360 million in revenue last year alone,” Addabbo said. “Resorts World has been a great community partner to our city and our state.”

“I am enthused once again,” Addabbo said. “There’s going to be more job creation and economic growth.”

City Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Ozone Park), an Ozone Park native and a black card member of the casino, is also excited about the development.

“Today is a wonderful day for this community and the entire borough of Queens,” Ulrich said. “Resorts World has been an economic boom and has an absolutely positive impact on the community.”

“They have been generous to the non-profits that serve our senior citizens, veterans, and our children. They have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars to the local community,” Ulrich said.

Michelle Stoddart, the director of community development for Resorts World, is from Kew Gardens and oversees the charitable contributions that go to the 80 local non-profits like the YMCA and Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning.

The casino is also responsible for replacing the playground at Hamilton Beach Park, which was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy.
