The casino parts yes.

I'd like to put a fence around Syracuse and let them open casinos and brothels and crackhouses and whatever else.

You've misunderstood me if you think I'd try and stop something I think is bad from coming to Syracuse.

Somewhere in the Buffalo Forum is a link showing the population of Syracuse still declining. Your on the right track now!!!

You mean the estimated whopping 24 people less in the area? Yup, leaving in droves, while the 3 county metro during the last census has its highest population ever. Using city population is somewhat played out given that laws for annexing land/adjacent communities varies by state. Here's a list of racinos and casinos in the US: United States Racinos

Ah, but you see to him only the city matter and everything else around here can die.

NY can survive if we can kill off the already near dead cities. Syracuse is just closer to death then most and a racino ain't ever gonna bring that dump back to life.

The suburbs will be fine once she finishes dying.

Syracuse isn't even keeping up with the birthrate, time to pull the plug.

Are you sure that you aren't 3rdworldsyr from Syracuse.com? Anyway, I don't think that shawn88 said that and the racino would be in the town of Cicero anyway.

I've never posted on there. Or here under any other name.

I'll own any thing I say.

I say this area is saturated with casinos. So anything new there takes jobs from here. I could get on board for something that would benefit us all but oppose anything that just robs jobs or money from each other.

One interesting thing about trying to make Syracuse a winner at the expense of the Metro is 80% of the people in the Metro do not live in the city. Its time for the push back to start.

I don't know what the city of Syracuse has to do with this specifically. I guess it is about competition. This racino would probably attract people from different parts of CNY and Upstate, as well as give an option for gaming in the immediate area versus driving a good 30-45 minutes.

If robbing jobs from non taxed land comes to Onondaga county where everything is taxed then not only does the county, town, and city benefit from it but the whole state benefits.

Here's a question for you, what is the definition of a dying city?
If someone came up to you and told your there's a city of a little more than 140 thousand and they just built the fifth biggest mall, have a 99 percent occupancy rate, several new apartments are being built in the city, the city only had 13 murders, and had a 1.4 billion dollar economic boom, not including 500 million to clean up Onondaga lake; I'd say wow! Looks like that city is doing pretty damn good. Oh wait, and Onondaga county gained 10 thousand people in the last censesus. Hmmmm.....sounds like common sense to me that Syracuse is not dying but instead revitalizing. But who knows, maybe that word "revitalize" was never taught to you out in Oneida.
