Was it just a Mirage?

From the Queens Ledger:

Are you waiting for the slots to come to Aqueduct? Well, unfortunately, your wait just got longer.

Casino and hotel giant MGM Mirage, Inc. announced last week that they have formally withdrawn their proposal to develop and manage the video lottery terminal (VTL) facility at Aqueduct Racetrack in South Ozone Park, as well as terminated negotiations with the New York Racing Association (NYRA) and the State of New York.

I really hope it gets built. Aqueduct needs to realize its potential. The condition it's in now is just sad.

When an area is purposely neglected...... until it's run into the ground....people tend to be grateful and jump at the first proposal that comes along to rescue it from its state of planned decay!

Take care and examine the potential outcome!
