Newsday: Islanders co-owner says proposed Belmont Park arena would be near LIRR station
New details have emerged about a plan to build an arena at Belmont Park.
The co-owner of the New York Islanders told Newsday that the proposed site would be near Belmont's LIRR station.
Currently that train station is only open part-time when racing is in season. If the plan goes through, Belmont's LIRR station would need to operate on a full-time basis.
The goal is to have the proposed arena host 150 events a year, including Islanders games.
