No Go on Waterfront Casino In Boston


Stephen Wynn of Las Vegas has his eye on the Boston waterfront for a casino, but the Hub Mayor Thomas M. Menino said he would not support it. The mayor insisted that Suffolk Downs, which has proposed a $600 million betting complex, is the right place for the city’s first resort-style casino, saying it has been a gambling establishment for 75 years.

Maybe before fighting over where the casinos would be, the senate and house might want to pass a bill allowing it? Maybe this is all show, and we're on our way to casinos in Mass but it seems unlikely this year or next given the current debate.

A casino on the waterfront would be fun. Hope it gets approved by the Mayor.
