And so will the JOBS and revenue for Long Island. But don't expect the NIMBYs to WAKE UP any time soon. A casino on Long Island will make this island grow and thrive just like ALL the other states that woke up and put up casinos.

WAKE UP LONG ISLANDERS
the coliseum area would be the best location, for a FULL casino.
the racino's at aqueduct(?)and/or belmont would NOT be full casinos, only video slots.
i've been up to saratoga several times and it is very nice up there and the casino(slots) are nice.
but then again, the people upstate are different than some of the element of people we have here in the 5 boro's.
most people are afraid when they hear the word casino because they think of it as being built out like AC.
a small scale area/casino like foxwoods/meghan sun, or caesars in the pocono's would be perfect for LI.
Just my opinion.
and for the people who are against it, there are just as many people for it.
