Casino magnate Sheldon Adelson wants to put a casino in the Javits Center, on Manhattan’s Far West Side, the New York Post reported. But while he is prepared to pounce in the event that New York City law makes it possible, there are already detractors, the Post said.

“There’s a little noise in New York now, and we’re going to take a look and see if we can put something… maybe in Manhattan and be able to maybe do something with [the Jacob K. Javits Center]… and put our complex there,” Las Vegas Sands President Mike Leven said. Las Vegas Sands, Aldelson’s company, is a leading casino development group.

But Assembly member Micah Kellner, who serves on the Racing and Wagering Committee, wasn’t having any of it. He said he would “do everything possible” to make sure the casino was not built. [Post]
