Build a Casino on Governor’s Island. Its already rezoned for hotels. Sticking it on the island would satiate the NIMBYs I think. Plus it would make the island more of a destination. Then we could bring into discussion a potential bridge to Red Hook or a gondola to Manhattan.

Contrary to popular belief every square damn inch of this city does not need to be developed. Governors Island as is a jewel in crown of NYC and a Casino would turn it into a tourist dump. Lets keep that garbage in TSQ.

I agree that Governor’s Island should not get a casino, or even be considered for one. But 1) Governor’s Island is already developed (under the definition of the word at least, they obviously don’t have a giant office tower on it or anything) and 2) There is nothing wrong with “tourist dumps” as you so call them. It just depends on what you’re doing and how you’re doing it. Though again, a casino would not be good for that Island. Or really most places around, I’d prefer they keep them is a singular area.

  1. I’m clearly aware that GI has buildings on it. Lets not get into semantics here. (I’m definitely in favor of the existing buildings being repurposed for business use as well as the university development that was floated a while back.
  2. We have enough spaces/areas for tourists in the city as is, I said what I said. I’m not willing to sacrifice one of the nicest green spaces in the city for even more commerce ( I say this as someone who is very pro-business, within reason). So as I said prior, TSQ makes the most sense. There is already vibrancy, crowds and amenities in every direction.

This idea is probably as smart as proposing a stadium in Center City Philly…but we’ll see how it goes

I assume these casino’s would have to be a part of these districts.

was there a point of copying a portion of my prior post?
