MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - Jay-Z, the businessman, is part of a group trying to renovate suburban New York's Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
The music mogul attended a meeting Thursday on Long Island, where the media was briefed on four proposals to renovate the arena and surrounding property.
Nassau County officials have been trying to come up with a plan to redevelop the 40-year-old arena for many years.
Its primary tenant, the New York Islanders hockey team, is moving to the new arena in Brooklyn when its lease expires in 2015.
Jay-Z's Roc Nation is part of a group that built Brooklyn's Barclay's Arena and is bidding for the Long Island project.
He took photos with county officials but did not speak during the 30-minute presentation.
County officials are expected to decide this summer.
