Sounds like a fun place based on the Yelp reviews.
Place is still filthy,and the stench of body odor and marijuana fill the air,if you ever want to show your kids what gambling does,take them to aqueduct,and show them the degenerates.place really needs to be shut down.but if you ever need a place to buy weed then definitely head to aqueduct.
A once good track is no more. Bathrooms are discusting, the place is falling apart, some of the people are filthy and smell. Some are the lowest form of scum this Earth has
There are no more fun times to be had at this travesty of a racetrack.
Now, all you see is the lowest of lows come to this place. Its free admission which allows disgusting people to come. Grown men drunk whip out their sh*t in the staircase and piss all over the floor when theyre steps away from a bathroom, People banging, cursing, and smoking weed out in the stands all day long. And because some of the concession stands are closed, some usually sleep overnight behind the counters. Many of them are homeless or just dont want to go home so they spend the whole day there. I know because ive been here many times till 2 AM. People thought that the casino would bring this place back to life, but the reality is that the golden age of horse racing is over. Those who would come to the track when I was a kid, are dead. A new crowd has taken over, and theyre a disgusting lot. Just a few weeks ago, a loser vandalised the machines by graffiti and striked again by smearing sh*t all over the machines. Be aware
There is a seating area outside the clubhouse that overlooks the paddock area that could be very nice but is also in serious need of a renovation. It's safe to say that nothing other than the occasional rainstorm has cleaned those outdoor seats for close to fifty years. God only knows what's been spilled on them. If that isn't enough there's even outside balconies facing the parking lot (away from the track). Who thought this was a good idea? I think this is so after the NY card is over and the California simulcast is over, the real degenerate gamblers can go out there and bet on which car gets to Rockaway Blvd first.
The place is a homeless shelter,do not bring your family here,it's disgusting,homeless men,and as soon as you walk in the smell of body odor hits u like a bat,but if u smoke weed great place to buy weed.the place needs to be shut down,on top of that trainers and jockeys are corrupt.wait for Belmont to open stay away from aqueduct you been warned.great place to bring your kids to show them what happens when you gamble.
My one star is for the nostalgia of my childhood.
This place is now a trash bin for human beings. The place needs renovation to all areas. No A/C in most areas, poor ventilation and dirt and grime all over.
The bathrooms are below subpar and the crowd is low,low class.
See you there!
