"I still don't understand this push for bigger and bigger convention centers when we can't even fill the ones that we have."

Exactly. Internet has killed off conventions. COMDEX, for example, was a huge event for many years but eventually died and was revived some years later as a virtual COMDEX. But politicians don't get votes and look as though they are creating jobs by pushing for Internet events, so if Cuomo and his business pals want a new convention center and a rebuilt Rockaway line be it LIRR or subway to service it, it will happen, regardless of the NIMBY opposition. Then we will have another, new white elephant to replace the existing white elephant we know as Aqueduct Race Course.
