TAKING A GAMBLE? In N.Y., Calder & Campanile noted opponents of the Willets Point casino project near Citi Field said that the city "should have revealed that the Mets’ owners proposed building a casino next to the stadium." Others said that they "fear that the casino plan -- which the city axed from a 2011 proposal by team owner Fred Wilpon’s Sterling Equities development operation -- could be added back." New York state Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is "receptive to a casino near the stadium, the state Legislature is considering an amendment to allow Vegas-style gaming in New York," and N.Y. Mayor Michael Bloomberg will be out of office next year (N.Y. POST, 2/6).
