New Resorts World casino subway station to open in Queens

New York City will celebrate the grand opening of the new Aqueduct Raceway subway station in Queens Tuesday.

Manhattan-bound A trains will now stop there at all hours of the day and night, making it easier for people to get back and forth to the Resorts World Casino.

The newly built Resorts World SkyBridge will also celebrate its grand opening.

The $15 million station and skybridge will ensure that even more New Yorkers are just minutes, not hours, away from the casino.

The station, a testament to the MTA's commitment to ensuring high-quality public transportation across New York City, has already been recognized as a model for future transit projects as a result of its aesthetic appeal and strategic location.
