Upstate was supposed to have a monopoly for a while. But the politicritters want more money now. Personally, I'm fine with it. Put one right on the far West Side of Manhattan.

Put one on the Coney Island boardwalk (like Atlantic City's boardwalk) or on Staten Island near the ferry.

What is Resorts World, and Empire City Gaming? Or does it have to have live Table Games with live dealer for it to be considered a real Casino?

Is this really the only option for big box store fronts? Mega casinos are no different than Home Depot, Walmart etc, etc. But is immune to the effects of online gambling because people need to go out and hang out somewhere.

Perhaps city can create another Chelsea Piers somewhere. People can go there pay to play sports, and have real productive fun.

If it wasn't for nanny state government, we could have Vegas/Miami nightlife here too and generate more tax dollars.

The only good thing about these tax and spend politicians, is that they are forced to expand personal freedoms to find additional sources of revenue for their idiotic social engineering pet projects.
Notice even with marijuana legalization debate, they are only legalizing it to get more funds, NOT because they think it is morally right, or it is a victimless crime, etc.

Liberals are only liberal in politics. Socially, liberals are as conservative as the Puritans. This is why liberal hotspots like Greenwich Village, Tribeca, West Village are so against bars, clubs or anything that can be considered party-like atmospheres. And since this type is getting more and more influential in NYC, hence the city is getting less active nightlife over the years.

This post (although about SF but also applies here as well) from a few years back sums it up nicely: http://www.city-data.com/forum/47365774-post10.html

Agreed. And they're not being very liberal with the marijuana rollout. They want to tax and regulate the hell out of it, and likely have the purchaze age be high.
