AECOM Hunt is moving a lot of earth for New York Arena Partners at Belmont Park in an effort to build an arena for The New York Islanders.
However, according to the rules of groundbreaking and ribbon cutting, none of this has “officially” happened. In the reality of the physical world, it certainly has.
The lease between NYAP and New York State’s Empire State Development Corporation still needs signatures, but a dig permit has apparently been issued. The steel has been ordered.
How far will the dig proceed before the official ceremony? I set the over/under line at 12 ½ feet.
