Bally's is working on a bid to build a casino in the Bronx, using 17 acres of city-owned land currently occupied by the Trump Golf Links

Bally’s Tees Up Bid for Bronx Casino on Trump Golf Course Land

Bally’s said Monday that it is working on a bid to build a casino in the Bronx, joining the crowded competition for three coveted casino licenses in the New York City area.. 

The proposal is built on a December deal between Bally’s and the Trump Organization that would transfer 17 acres of city-owned land from the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point into the hands of the casino chain, the New York Daily News reported. 

In a statement, Bally’s said it has begun an “ongoing series of conversations with local elected officials, community groups and key civic leaders,” soliciting input on the potential project. 

“We are incredibly excited at the prospect of bringing Bally’s community centered approach to gaming and entertainment to the Bronx,” Bally’s said in the statement. “At Bally’s, we start with the proposition that the leaders in the community know what is best for their community.”
