(WXXI) A new Siena College survey shows that holiday gift spending among New Yorkers will be pretty similar to what it was last year. The survey shows that more than half of those polled will spend under $500, according to survey director, Don Levy.

Officials with the del Lago Resort & Casino in Seneca County have announced an opening  date for that $440 million project.
