I was reading in the NY Post today about how there are talks about bringing Casinos into the heart of NYC. Then it got me to thinking whatever happened to the talks about Steven Cohen and the partnership he was looking at to build a casino by Citi Field.

That led me to thinking about the News from October about Steve Cohen.
“Steve thinks that Willets Point needs to be addressed long-term—it’s a mess,” said a Mets spokesperson, adding the team’s priority remains on filling open baseball positions. “He has been hearing lots of ideas, and the Mets want to be part of those conversations to ensure the interests of our fans and the local community are well represented.”
And then that led me to here.

Others who submitted preliminary proposals: Bally’s, Las Vegas Sands Corp., Wynn Resorts, Hard Rock International, UE Resorts which operates the Okada casino in Manila; and Rush Street Gaming, which operates a casino in upstate Schenectady.There was strong opposition to a casino opening near Citi Field, the NY Mets home in Flushing — including from the influential Queens Civic Congress, a coalition of 60 neighborhood groups.
I didn't hear a peep out of this. I pay attention to what goes on with the development of 126th street and haven't seen a word about anything. So what's the next plan?
