Luxury hotel opens up in Aqueduct parking lot.

Queens Chronicle 

 Resorts World New York City officially opened the Hyatt Regency JFK Airport hotel to guests last Friday.

The ribbon cutting for the new hotel featured executives from Genting, which owns the hotel and casino, and Hyatt, as well as elected officials and community leaders.

“We are excited to debut the Hyatt Regency JFK Airport at Resorts World New York and invite guests to experience our intuitive hospitality as they relax and recharge after a day of gaming, dining and entertainment,” said Brian Reynolds, senior vice president of Resorts World NYC.

The Genting Group made waves when it made clear last year that it planned to push ahead with its plans to open a $400 million, 400-room hotel at the Queens Resorts World location while the hotel industry was in the middle of a bleak market outlook at the apex of the pandemic.

Queens Borough President Donovan Richards called the opening a huge step forward in Queens’ comeback.

“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the world-class Hyatt at Resorts World NYC — as well as the job opportunities it’s created — to The World’s Borough. Further proof that Queens is open for business and leading the way,” he tweeted.

"Hyatt at Resorts World"

So what?
It will be filled with whores, johns and people doing drug deals.
The shitheads that use that Casino are locals who don't need hotels for sleeping.
This makes no sense, Such a large hotel could never be populated because tourists and most with $$$ to burn stay in Manhattan and take the complementary luxury bus and limo busses if they want to hit that Casino

There goes all the tourism money - hotels and their guests and mid-town destinations.

Gambling is regressive and cannibalistic. New York State has already ‘gambled’ away ALL pretense of jobs stability (that it’s lying, cheating, stealing—and now sexually molesting governor profoundly lost), regarding REAL jobs, growth & development that resulted in the remnants of (mostly) white, long term, multigenerational, working class residents fleeing to middle class friendly states like Florida, Tennessee, Georgia, the Carolinas and northern New Jersey—EN MASS.

Because, any business scale that portends to be in favor of job growth, job security and long term development that is modeled off of foreign gambling mills like Malaysian based Genting, is bootstrapping itself onto an immoral and unethical industry that relies on a solid revenue stream of gamblers who can LEAST afford to lose, because they are working poor, is a failed government experiment in ‘Bait & Switch’ economics that is more nebulous than George Bush’s ‘Fuzzy Math’ observations, and Ron Reagan’s KNOWINGLY counterfeit ‘Reaganomics’ (foisted by his grand larcenous government pal-hack, Alan Greenspan).

So, what STILL works in New York State? Government crime, graft, corruption—and, monstrous unchecked, unpunished greed that has ALWAYS worked—and, the public be damned! THIS IS NEW???

There is Nothing Luxurious about working or living in that area.

I can't wait to hear they are turning that "luxurious hotel" into a homeless shelter for drug addicts, violent criminals, and the mentally ill.
