INSIDE THE PAPERS

The New York Times

Thomas Kaplan writes: “New York’s highest court declined on Tuesday to hear a challenge to the state’s gay-marriage law, ending the only significant legal threat to same-sex weddings in the state.”

Charlie Bagli reports: “A casino that opened a year ago at the fading Aqueduct horse racing track in Queens has emerged as the country’s highest-grossing slot parlor, helping to reshape the gambling landscape in the Northeast as patrons chose less opulent, more local casinos instead of traditional gambling meccas in Atlantic City and Connecticut.”

Nina Bernstein notes: “Depending on who is doing the talking these days, New York State is either a national model of how to curb Medicaid spending, or the nation’s prime example of Medicaid abuse.”

Winnie Hu looks at the six-person race to succeed City Councilman Larry Seabrook.

New York Post

Erik Kriss reports: “Lap dances are not art.
The state’s highest court yesterday ruled against a strip club owner who sought to avoid paying state sales taxes by citing an exemption the state treasury grants for ‘dramatic or musical arts performances.’ “

Sally Goldenberg writes: “A major rezoning of Manhattan’s Chelsea Market is on its way to approval in the City Council next week, sources said after a heated, four-hour hearing on the project. Council Speaker Christine Quinn did not attend the council’s Zoning Subcommittee hearing yesterday, even though the project is in her district, and issued a statement saying she is still examining the plan.”

Until tomorrow.
