Mangano Seeks New Ideas for Nassau Coliseum » Nassau Coliseum Redevelopment Hockey

The sun sets behind the Nassau Coliseum as Nassau County residents, already paying some of the highest property taxes in the country, vote to decide whether to back a $400 million referendum for a new hockey arena and ballpark, Monday, Aug. 1, 2011, in Uniondale, N.Y. Nassau County officials supporting the effort say the vote is needed to give officials enough time to build a replacement for the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum before the New York Islanders' lease expires in 2015.
