Jul 22nd 2011 1:08PM I'm tired of people writing falsely negative reports on Atlantic City. In reality, it's a very easy place to love. This video shows the absolutely worst part of the city, on a gray, rainy day no less. Most cities, including Las Vegas, have rough areas. But the difference is people look for them in Atlantic City and look past them in Las Vegas. Where is the broad, attractive and very clean beach? Where are the upscale stores like Gucci, Tiffany and Ferrangamo? Where are the many wonderful restaurants run by celebrity chiefs? If you saw inside shots of the so-called "plastic" casinos you would see they are not plastic at all but actually beautifully-designed, themed environments that are lovely. Also, the night life in Atlantic City is first rate, with talent that rivals the best in NYC. Don't believe this slanted video.
May 5th 2010 2:17PM I'm sorry but I disagree. The average dress size for an American woman is 14 - 16. It may not be the most "healthy" size but it is the most common size. We need to face the facts-not everyone is or can be the ideal, thin size that the media considers acceptable.
Dec 22nd 2009 9:08AM I am sick and tired of people taking unwarranted, cheap shots at AC! Some facts: the casinos in Las Vegas are off way more than the ones in AC but no news articles are calling them "rotting corpses". The restaurants in AC have some of the best food I've ever tasted (but yes, it is expensive). The shopping and entertainment including live bands, comics, shows and headliners is top notch.
As far as DE. and PA. casinos taking business away from AC, have you people ever been to these dumps? I went to several and #1, they're empty, #2, they are mostly old converted buildings with rows of slots, a cafeteria-like buffet with horrible food and some fast food outlets. No decor, no class, no decent shopping and no entertainment at all. They provide a shorter drive to the slots for locals and nothing else.
I love AC and go there every month or two. Depite news reports to the contrary, the casinos are packed on the weekends. If they are in financial trouble, it is the result of mismanagement and not lack of incoming revenue. Sure Vegas is bigger and better but you can't find a better gaming town on the East coast.
