Queens lawmakers introduce bill to expand bingo games for seniors at Pomonok Senior Center | April 17, 2019: State Senator Toby Stavisky and Assemblyman Daniel Rosenthal joined senior residents on Tuesday for a game of bingo at Queens Community House Pomonok Senior Center this week.
The lawmakers visited the center at 67-09 Kissena Blvd. in Flushing to announce their legislation (S.3917/ S6212) to expand the operation of bingo games for seniors and community centers.
“New York’s restrictions around bingo have been long overdue for a change,” said Rosenthal. “Bingo provides our seniors with an opportunity to build friendships and keeps spirits high. I had a great time joining Senator Stavisky and constituents at Pomonok Senior Center for a few lively rounds. Given the robust diversity of Queens, we look forward to expanding social activities within our community.”
