Playland Ice Casino opens 2 years after Sandy

Posted: Updated:

Playland Ice Casino in Rye is now officially open for skating two years after Superstorm Sandy.



Westchester County made a 10-year agreement with American Skating, the largest owner of ice rinks in the nation, to run the facility. American Skating will also invest more than $1 million for even more improvements.



Sandy severely damaged the facility, destroying the roof. A $4.9 million renovation project has restored it to its original glory.



The county hopes to be reimbursed by the federal government for 90 percent of the renovation costs.
