Casino on Coney Island?

New York City's Coney Island is continuing to reinvent itself, but this might well be the area's biggest change since the Cyclone first took off: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to make table gambling legal in New York, and several sources are betting on Coney Island as a new casino destination.

Local news station NY1 is reporting that the plan would need approval from the state legislature, followed by a statewide public referendum. Ultimately, the process would take at least two years.

Coney Island has seen a resurgence in recent years with new amusement parks and attractions.

What do  you think? Will Coney Island become a rival to Las Vegas…or at least to Atlantic City? Sound off in the comments below!
