  • I'm a horse racing fan and despite the fact I live a few hours from "The Big A", I never made it there until today. For a casual fan, it very likely would do nothing to turn them on to horse racing or...  more »

  • I had so much fun here. It's fun to bet on the horses, win a lot of $$ and if don't know anything about it, just ask the friendly staff. They are happy to explain!
  • My impressions of the racetrack and slot area are mixed. First of all, the prices for some items are outrageously high. $4.50 for a bagel or a bottle of water is robbery. The food court provided adequate choices, but nothing in the "really healthy" category, which I always choose. Of course my tastes are quite discriminating,. so it's probably not a fair review for most folks. I'm sure their gourmet restaurant(s) are quite nice. One thing that impressed me the most was the friendliness and the efficiency of the cashier personnel. In particular a gentleman named Arthur was extremely quick, and cordial in his duties. Others at the cage were also nice and well schooled, however, he as truly exceptional. The overall ambiance of the place is like a ware house filled with slots and video games. There is nothing special about the casino area at all. The lack of cocktail service was quite apparent to me, as I went several hours playing in the upstairs area without seeing a waitress. Granted, my review has nothing to do with my gambling result, as I was fortunate to have a winning day! In summary my overall impression is that the staff in the casino and food areas are all very nice, saying and doing all the right things. Obviously there has been extensive training in this area, or New Yorkers just get it right (no surprise there). The casino area is nothing special but there is an ample supply of games to satisfy one's gambling desires.. Overall review: Staff:5.0, Casino 3.0
  • If it wasnt for the casino, they would have used that money to maintain the place ro make it look more fine and how it was years ago. Now they might take down the barns in aqueduct to build shops for the casino but the track will still be there. That can be a good thing but then for the people who work there like me are gonna need to go someplace different like Belmont.
  • easy to get too by bus or train.
  • Good place to spend time with friends and family.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
