From the NY Post:
By late summer, New Yorkers seeking to spend the day gambling won't have to risk taking a bus to an out-of-state casino.
Resorts World NY, the planned Aqueduct slots casino, yesterday announced a three-month speedup in development -- with 2,500 video-lottery terminals up and running by late summer.
The accelerated timetable comes days after a Bronx bus crash on I-95 killed 15 passengers returning from Mohegan Sun in Connecticut.
The original Aqueduct plan had called for 1,600 video-lottery terminals in time for the grand opening and the other 2,000 by spring 2012.
Also, a skybridge will link the racino to the A-train station by year's end.
"If you're coming from Chinatown, all you have to do is get on the A train," said Assemblywoman Audrey Pheffer (D-Queens), whose district includes Aqueduct in Ozone Park.
