Casino Update

It's been a little while since we've heard any good news with respect to the Shinnecock Indian Nation's efforts to build a casino, but that's finally changed. On Monday, a federal appeals court threw out a court-issued injunction preventing them from using the tribe-owned Hampton Bays property known as Westwoods for a casino development. They immediately used the opportunity to request a sit down with Governor Andrew Cuomo "to discuss how the [Shinnecock] Nation and the State can move forward together." This doesn't mean the East End is about to see a new way to spend money, mind you. If possible, the tribe would prefer to build in someone else's backyard. [Previously, 27 East]
