Long Island Wins 101 Million Dollars
Albany selected Long Island as one of the winning regions. The 5 person council that selected the winning regions awarded Long Island 101 million dollars for developing projects that will create jobs. What does this means for the Islanders? At this time not much, but it does open the door for the Islanders to jump aboard one of these projects. One project that would make sense for Wang to get involve in is the Heartland Project. The Heartland Project is the destination center that Wang has always dreamed about for Long Island, but it is Wolkoff project. Mr. Wolkoff needs more financing on top of the 2.5 million they just won from the state for infrastructure, which is where Wang can get in on the project. Wang could help Mr. Wolkoff finance the project and bring the Islanders to the Heartland Project. This partnership would allow both men accomplish their dream of creating a destination for Long Islanders and make them a ton of money at the same time.
Belmont Entertainment Center wasn't mention among the projects receiving money.
