"While I agree that a new Convention Center is a great idea and that Aqueduct Racetrack (which now has a casino) has the space for it, I am concerned about who would want to attend a convention there. When people attend a convention in Chicago, Las Vegas, SF, etc, they do so, in part, to be able to enjoy visiting the local restaurants and take in shows etc. If they stay in a hotel in South Ozone Park, that is quite a commute to Manhattan and if they stay in Manhattan, that is quite a commute to South Ozone Park. I haven't seen anyone bring up this issue in the press." ?DTNYC [Cuomo's Shell Game for NYC Con Centers]
