Legal gambling comes to big apple

The name could choke a horse—the Resorts World Casino New York City, that city’s first modern legal casino. The horse reference works particularly well because it is connect to Aqueduct racetrack in Queens. It opened at 1 p.m. Oct. 28 at 110-00 Rockaway Blvd.

The casino contains 5,000 video gambling and electronic table games—that is, the table games, including craps and roulette, are operated by robotic arms.

It represents one more little drain on any state economy that happens to rely on gambling.
