Steve Cohen has another meeting about the parkland at Citi Field


There was a second "vision quest" meeting about the parking lot where Shea Stadium was torn down. It is an interesting read again.

From The Queens Courier 

Queens Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas Grech praised Cohen for the process in which he’s gone about to get input from the community on the lot. He described the approach as “bottom-up,” meaning that the first people Cohen is trying to hear from are members of the community and small business owners before exploring plans with the city and other organizations.

Grech said he would like to see a small convention center built in the area to help drive both local and regional businesses to the area.

A convention center would be a good idea for the area but why do I feel like it would be attached to a casino built on parkland?

We might have a new NYC/Long Island Area Casino Contender!

 


Vornado Realty Trust has now entered the chat! Vornado is one of the biggest real estate companies in NYC and they are kicking the tires on soon to be knocked down Hotel Pennsylvania site across from Madison Square Garden.

From The NY Post.

Vornado, which rarely responds to media inquiries, broke its silence about a possible casino bid when contacted by The Post. 

“We are studying the possibility of applying for a casino license [in the Penn Station area], but we have no deal in place,” a Vornado spokesperson said. “Our most important criterion for any project is that it meet the economic development objectives and produce the transit and public improvements set forth in the state’s General Project Plan.”

Who are the other folks vying for the licenses?

SL Green has teamed with Caesars Entertainment in Times Square; Related Companies and Wynn Resorts are eyeing Hudson Yards; Soloviev Group wants a site on First Avenue near the UN; Hudson’s Bay Company hopes to put a casino at Saks Fifth Avenue; Mets owner Steve Cohen may possibly team with Hard Rock for one at Willets Point, Queens; and Thor Equities is gambling on Coney Island.

Read more here. 

This is going to be interesting. Is Vegas giving any odds on this situation?

FORD BRAND AMBASSADOR –



Downstate Casino Applications are open

 


This was in NY DAILY NEWS on Jan 4th. This is from an article talking about how the applications for the downstate casino license open.

A community advisory committee made up of local stakeholders must also give each application the go-ahead.

Sen. Joe Addabbo (D-Queens), chairman of the chamber’s gaming committee, applauded the board for moving forward.

“The quicker the three licenses are approved, the quicker we can begin to realize the major benefits to the state, such as thousands of construction and post-construction jobs, billions in revenue from the licenses, an increase in problem gambling monies and programs, as well as billions more in educational funding when the winning casinos go live,” he said in a statement.

As part of the state budget last year, Gov. Hochul and lawmakers agreed to fast-track the approval process for downstate casinos, which will be allowed to offer table games like poker and blackjack in addition to slots and video terminals.

Two existing “racinos,” Resorts World Casino in Queens and the Empire City Casino in Westchester County, are preparing to apply for the full licenses and are considered frontrunners in the competition.

I don't think this is a slam dunk for 126th street.
