New Nassau Casino?

Officials in Nassau County, N.Y., are in preliminary talks with the Shinnecock Indian Nation over the development of a casino near the aging Nassau Coliseum.

The tribe has applied for federal recognition to run gaming facilities and is apparently considering several sites.

New York Islanders owner Charles Wang has been attempting to replace the Coliseum and build his $3.7 billion mixed-use Lighthouse development in the area surrounding the venue for several years.
