NY businesswoman wants to change city into ‘Chinese Disneyland’

A businesswoman in Long Island in New York is wanting to build a massive ‘Chinese Disneyland’ in the Catskills.

The Disneyland would include an amusement park, huge mansions and a ‘Forbidden City’ laid out according to the principles of Feng Shui.

The China City of America scheme could bring thousands of wealthy Chinese immigrants to the town of Thompson, under a federal program that lets foreigners get visas by investing $500,000 in the US, the New York Post reports.

According to the report, the mastermind behind the plan, Sherry Li, said the development would eventually draw six billion dollars in foreign investment.

The designs for China City include a college, 1,000 residences, a Chinese-themed retail center and possibly a casino.

The place would feel like a trip to China just 90 miles outside New York City.

The plan is now under consideration by the leaders of Thompson, the report added. (ANI)
