I’ve been waiting to see where this was going to go and when folks from around the area were going to pick up on the casino wanting to be built on NYC parkland. I’m going to say this right now. Yes. I have been very vocal about not putting a casino where Shea stood. Yes. I was also ver vocal that a mall shouldn’t have been built there either when the Wilson’s were trying to get that passed into existence. I did come up with an idea that could have been a compromise for the ballpark, you can look it up if you really want to. Also, if The Cohen’s asked to be a part of or help out the QBC in anyway I would jump at that opportunity but will not sway my opinion about Tom Seaver Way not needing a casino built on parkland.
