Cosmos Hope To Score With Proposed Stadium At Belmont Racetrack

Friday, 01 February 2013 00:00

The New York Cosmos have submitted a proposal to build a 25,000-seat soccer stadium at Belmont Parl. 

The so-called Elmont Town Crossing will involve transforming two sections of Belmont Park into an entertainment complex, with a “Restaurant Row” of nine new eateries, nearly 250,000 square feet of retail space, a 175-room hotel and the development of a brand-new 4.3-acre public park for the residential community.

The proposed development was formally delivered to the Empire State Development Corporation,  the state’s economic development arm, on Jan. 11 and is expected to cost more than $400 million. It would create more than 500 construction jobs and over 3,000 full-time permanent jobs.

Kids Playing For Kids Hurricane Sandy Lacrosse Benefit

Tuesday, 20 November 2012 00:00

As the sun set on a picture perfect Sunday and the lights came on at Tully Park, children from New Hyde Park, Floral Park, Franklin Square, Roosevelt and Oceanside took to the lacrosse field to play the game they love. From a spectator’s view it looked like any other game, but this night was different. On this night they were playing for a cause.

Just over two weeks ago Hurricane Sandy pounded the East Coast and left Long Island in state of destruction. Some lost power while others lost everything. When Eric Rudd from Long Island Park Lacrosse called Pete McClean from the New Hyde Park PAL Lacrosse the mission was clear “Kids playing for kids.”

 

Willie Dempsey Inducted Into ENYSSA Hall Of Fame

Friday, 09 November 2012 00:00

The Eastern New York State Soccer Association (ENYSSA) will induct its 15th member from Long Island into its Hall of Fame (HOF) this year after announcing that New Hyde Parker Willie Dempsey’s nomination by the Long Island Soccer Football League (LISFL) has been accepted. This comes only months after he was named “Life Member” at the LISFL’s annual awards dinner in June. Dempsey will be the first Long Island inductee to the HOF since Malusa Marco in 2010.

Willie has been part of the Long Island perennial powerhouse amateur club New York Irish Rovers for over 30 years, starting as a player later becoming an administrator and is currently club president. Dempsey’s achievements both as player and coach are unequivocally one of the best resumes in amateur soccer on LI, including 10 New York State Championships (four Division 1 Manning Cups), 20 Long Island League Championships, 24 Long Island Cup Championships and six Sportsmanship Awards. Thanks in part to Willie, the New York Irish Rovers is currently the second most-decorated club in the 64 year history of the LISFL.
