CASINO IN JERSEY CITY? A venture capitalist from Massachusetts has been quietly meeting with leading New Jersey politicians in recent months, pushing a proposal for a casino and hotel rising 95 floors above New York Harbor. The $4.6 billion project would also feature residences, a huge motor sports stadium and the largest Ferris wheel in the world. Good idea? Pie in the sky? Should New Jersey focus on improving Atlantic City before allowing a casino in Jersey City?
