Citi Field Local Residents Approve 90% Casino Plan, Announces Survey Results

Since Stephen Cohen, owner of the New York Mets, and his initial pushback against a casino project for City Field in Queens, most residents don’t seem to care. A recent survey by Queens Future found that about 89% of those surveyed supported the casino hotel scheme, which is located close to Citi Field. But this bid will have to win one of the Northern State licenses.

A survey conducted by North Shore Strategies on behalf of Cohen heard from more than 10,000 residents in the areas of Corona, East Elmhust, Flushing, LeFrak City, and Jackson Heights. All of these areas are close to the ballpark. The questions were conducted in English, Mandarin, Korean, and Spanish, the most common languages in the region.

However, the question was ambiguous and the study could be slightly misleading. Participants in the survey were asked if they would like to see Willes Point remain 50 acres of untapped asphalt or use it for something great for everyone. Because of this, 89% said they would prefer the latter, which could include a potential casino.

The North Shore Strategies survey wants to transform Willet Point into a shared space where people can come and enjoy and be proud. However, the presentation did not specify whether Canvas directly asked respondents for their opinions on the gaming facility. More than 32% want green space, 23% want to see more jobs, and 16% prefer Queens Food Hall.

North Shore’s presentation also features a “Community Voice” section, which includes the words of community leaders. They are all in favour of developing Willes Point, and support Mr Cohen’s proposal to that effect. However, no one directly mentioned casinos, and due to the nature of the question, some locals may disagree completely.

To illustrate this, there are three state casino licenses available, and if you want to launch a gaming amenity near Citi Field, Mr. Cohen will have to secure one of them. But it won’t be as easy as it sounds, because so many third-party applicants have already submitted their proposals in different fields and conditions.

Some of the candidates include Las Vegas Sands, which aims to bring casino properties to Long Island. But the company’s bid is against the Casino Citizens’ Association. Furthermore, trustees at Hofstra University have written an open letter about the proposed gaming project, calling it “completely inappropriate.”

Meanwhile, Caesars Entertainment partnered with Rock Nation and SL Green to obtain one of its licenses and open a casino in Times Square. However, their bid was met with local complaints. The Broadway League portion of the No Times Square casino group said the project would exacerbate congestion in neighborhoods already stuck in traffic.
