Shinnecock Given Green Light

6

I don't know if anyone picked up on it before, but the US government dismissed the Connecticut-based action barring Shinnecock tribal recognition earlier this month. This clears the way for the tribe to establish casinos on Long Island. The question now is: will the Shinnecock adopt Wang's Lighthouse project in whole or in part? My impression is that they plan to move quickly meaning we should know something before next summer. Given the thousands of empty seats at home games, the Shinnecock are probably all that stands between the Isles and a move to Queens.
