Actually it's 6 or 7 blocks further to the west...granted those are short blocks measured in the east-west direction. For a better comparision I checked it out on Google earth...using the Cornwall Centre as a starting point, it's about a half mile to Mosaic stadium...this increases to a full mile if you want to walk to Evraz. I made that half mile walk once last year, and I'm pretty sure that's my limit.
I would think for a lot of people that length of walk is going to take a downtown parking spot out of the equation. For reference a CP location (and a pedway) would have reduced that walk to about 1/5th of a mile.
Maybe we need to come up with some type of passenger rail car system that could shuttle people from the Casino area over to Evraz???
