BK businesses excited for upcoming same-sex marriages

BROOKLYN - Mere days after New York legalized same-sex marriages, Brooklyn businesses are preparing for the influx of happy couples looking to get married.

The staff at the Prospect Park Alliance says it is already working hard preparing for the influx of same-sex weddings expected to take place there.

The state is also likely to see a boost in revenue, with $2.3 million from marriage licenses alone and $310 million in total revenue over the next three years, according to the state Senate?s Independent Democratic Conference.

Same-sex couples will be legally allowed to get married starting July 25.
