That would be one enormous golf course.

Hey, us Downbeachers (Longport/Margate/Ventnor) have to get our seedy underbelly fix somewhere.
Yea another Virginia Beach VA!

All luxury condos? Miami has a lot of poverty, and except for parts of the urban core and certain beach communities, it appears to be in a serious state of decline.

This is no surprise. This is what happens when we have a shrinking working class and 1000s of illegals being brought in every day to be welfare recipients and voters for socialism.

Wait ... what?

The closure of the Showboat Casino is because of socialism?

I don't think AC is going to "die" but let's face it: it has serious competition in the gambling community.

In my view, AC has to reinvent itself. It has to be much more than casinos - and it already is trying to - but it's attempt to be an entertainment, restaurant, shopping, and beach resort is lacking. The boardwalk is tacky. I have nothing against Chinese foot massage parlors, but these businesses should be on the side streets not prime spots on the boardwalk ... same goes for dollar stores ... you would never see places like these on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach South Beach strip.
