From the NY Post:
Queens leaders said yesterday they want to scratch a plan to have scantily clad Las Vegas-style dancers performing at a proposed casino at Aqueduct Racetrack, while an upstate judge ordered the Paterson administration to halt its latest efforts to open a gambling facility there.
Genting New York -- the American arm of the Malaysian-based gambling giant -- unveiled images on Monday of a proposed "racino" that includes a stage for showgirls to strut their stuff while gamblers play video lottery terminals.
"That's not the type of venue we're looking for," said Community Board 10 Chairwoman Betty Bratton.
Assemblywoman Audrey Pheffer (D-Ozone Park) said having showgirls at Aqueduct "went over like a lead balloon."
"That was a mistake. I'm not for scantily clothed dancers. This is not Las Vegas!" Pheffer said.
Meanwhile, a study says a casino there won't be profitable.
And SL Green is protesting.
