Playland Ice Casino opens 2 years after Sandy
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.
