A groundbreaking ceremony for the New York Islanders arena at Belmont Park is scheduled for Monday afternoon, according to a report in Newsday.
Though they’ve been digging for weeks, the Islanders owners have fulfilled a promise to have the ceremony after Labor Day.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office has begun sending out email invitations to local dignitaries inviting them to “please join Governor Cuomo for an announcement” at Belmont Park, the story continued.
Spokespeople for Cuomo and Empire State Development Corp. have not yet responded to requests for comment.
