Atlantic City Ghost Town

As if to prove the point of my earlier post, Mark Di Ionno has a piece on the emptiness of the boardwalk and the beach.

Read the whole thing but below are a few good quotes:

“The fascination of slot machines is over with,” Terrigino said. “More gambling isn’t the solution. If we don’t make it fun for people in Atlantic City, they’ll make us irrelevant.”

“We threw all the eggs in one basket. Maybe this is a wake-up call.”

Atlantic City took its greatest attraction [the beach] and made it inaccessible.

“Our beaches are beautiful. You can’t beat it,’ said Terrigino, “but other towns do better bringing people to the beach.”
