The city of Yonkers is selling the 6-acre Chicken Island parking lot to AMS Acquisitions for $16 million, Lohud reported. New York City-based AMS is planning a mixed-use development and a luxury hotel for the property. Named for the slaughterhouse that once occupied the site, Yonkers has been trying to develop the downtown Chicken Island property for 40 years. [Lohud]
