There should have been one in Manhattan 50 years ago, everybody knows that.

This is where all the money comes from, but the surrounding areas have been bending over backwards to make sure they sucked out all that money and it didn't stay in NYC, Atlantic city was built on the backs on NY'ers.

It's high time we brought that money back and kept it here where the revenues will benefit NYC taxpayers. And not for nothing, but a Manhattan casino would probably be the glitziest in the world, Monte Carlo would have nothing on this

Will nanny state de Blasio let it be a real casino, though?

By the time this could actually happen (a casino actually being built, not the law changed), Bla will be out of office (at least his current one.) This is a state issue, so Bla couldn't block it, at least directly.

Couldn't the mayor use city laws to water down the casino?

There'd be the usual NIMBY protests wherever they decide to put one. Nothing happens in this city without somebody being unhappy. And of course, the usual local councilmember will take up their cause and proclaim how this or that is detrimental to the community.

People forget but there were protests when that Aqueduct racino Resorts World was first proposed too.

Resorts World in Queens generates more State revenue than any casino in the entire country including Las Vegas. It's money making monster, I can only imagine what would happen in Manhattan - the MTA would never have money problems again

They started construction:

I actually like going there when I'm in the gambling mood. I'm not much of a gambler so I dont do tables. Slots are good enough for me.

In the case of Resorts World, which already exists, not so much. The same with Empire city, which is just outside the city limits in Yonkers.

For a new construction casino inside the city, yes, the city might be able to stop it through zoning or such. Then again, the state could overrule the city and force it through.

But I'm referring to what is allowed inside the casino, such as operation hours, table games with live dealers, indoor smoking, etc.

If all we get is a Resorts World 2.0, it's not gonna recapture any of the Vegas vibe. Even nanny state New Jersey allows exceptions to its state laws (such as last call and smoking laws) for Atlantic City.
