And the proposal is long dead, too, rejected in 2011 and replaced by — at best — a shopping center project. Yet that doesn’t stop the New York Post from running a big “The Mets want to open a casino at Citi Field” story today.
The article itself notes that city and state officials won’t approve it and that the desire by the Wilpons to get a casino near the ballpark. Indeed, full-blown non-Indian casinos with table gambling are illegal in New York. There’s currently a bill to legalize them, but governor Cuomo has said that approval would only go to a couple of them upstate.
I’m not sure how a nearly two-year old proposal — sorry, rejected proposal — that even if it was current would be rejected again based on the clear stance of state and local officials gets counted as a “revelation,” but that’s something maybe the Post can tell us tomorrow.
I’m sure A-Rod’s behind it somehow. Maybe the Daily News will explain how tomorrow too.
