May 10, 2004

Last week Yonkers Raceway owner Tim Rooney revealed that when the new slots/casino area at Yonkers Raceway is operational, it will be known as Empire City at Yonkers.

Management at Yonkers has been mostly quiet about details for the track's video lottery terminal (VLT) area, which it has said will cost $140 million and create 825 permanent jobs.

In a story published May 8 in the New York Journal News, Rooney said he had pulled a deal to develop the property into a shopping mall off the table after the New York state legislature approved VLTs at the tracks.

Rooney publicly commented about the new VLT facility after local officials and area homeowners met to discuss the impact of the changes at Yonkers.
