Aqueduct opening delayed by bird crap
From the NY Post:
The opening of the city's first casino, at Aqueduct Race Track, has been delayed -- because of massive mounds of pigeon doo-doo.
"There were pigeon droppings everywhere -- on the floors, ceilings, walls, on every surface," said one stunned official.
Genting Resorts World New York has spent more than $15 million to remove lead paint, asbestos and, yes, pigeon waste.
That's a lot of poop -- and one reason why opening day has been pushed back from spring to early fall.
