There is no point in making it just another beach town like Wildwood, or Cape May, or Seaside, or Asbury.

They need those big resorts, and you may as well include the gambling. The infrastructure is already there. Be a huge waste otherwise.

They need to include more like Vegas does with shows though.

I think gambling is over. They need to start diversifying in other industries like healthcare and tech.


I would think about making discrete brothel prostitution legal though.

I also know you can drive a car roundtrip from philly to Atlantic city in most 6 cylinder cars for about $15 in gas and do it in 2hrs or less using the AC expressway.
Of course not counting your casino playing(aka usually losing my hard earned money) time, casino parking costs, TOLLS ( expect $10) and traffic backups at rush hour LOL

Exactly, you got to put something there to attract people especially the locals from NYC metro, Philly, and Maryland. Its a shorter trip driving to AC than driving to airport, waiting, and then flying like 4 hours. They need ferry service from NYC.

this is why a direct train line from nyc is needed. the one that goes from nyc to philly and finally AC takes 3 hours if everything is working correctly! That's insanity!


need to get that nyc money!

A.C. is a sad place. Especially in the winter, it never could be a destination for people. The beach scene is no LBI as crime is high mostly from the locals.

They did have one several years ago, and it was a flop.

There’s no crime on the beaches near the casinos. Not in the daytime anyway.
