I too have been to lots of casinos all over the country from the Vegas strip to podunk towns. They are definitely NOT a plus for the surrounding area in terms of urbanity and walkability, and they are definitely not classy either. Vegas overcomes that somewhat, but only because of sheer scale and flash. Atlantic City is nowhere close.

I filled out the survey (just once, like the naive innocent I am) on the premise that the casino will be bad for the walkability around it. I say, stick it in a place that will suck up tourists and is accessible on transit for workers, but is away from a neighborhood that could do better than a blank-walled fortress. McCormick sounds good to me.
