I am proud today to help celebrate Resorts World Casino NYC’s 9 year anniversary here in South Ozone Park. For nearly a decade, Resorts World has provided entertainment for thousands of our local residents and visitors alike. The casino has been an outstanding community partner and created over a thousand jobs, many of which have been filled by residents of the immediate communities. In addition to providing our state with billions in state revenue, Resorts World NYC has contributed to New York State over $3 billion in educational funding. I would like to congratulate the entire Resorts World NYC team on this amazing milestone and look forward to working with them in the future.
