Empire City Casino, one of the largest entertainment destinations in the northeast located less than two miles north of New York City, hit the “Big Apple” on July 28, when vice president of marketing Ryan Murphy. aide de camp Brandon Landy, and the ever-able and enthusiastic staff hosted a group of the casino’s VIP guests  at The Grand Havana Room in New York City.
