An Atlantic City Review

   Steve Persall writes a mixed review of Atlantic City.  One stinging passage from his review:

Atlantic City is Biloxi, Miss., with a boardwalk, a proud but economically challenged community hoping tourists tide them over until summertime. The main attractions are fine dining and gambling, with nine casinos in quasi-elegant resorts — three owned by Donald Trump.

Anyone not familiar with Biloxi does not have to pick up a John Grisham novel to know that the comparison is not flattering.

   Mr. Persall gives favorable remarks as well.  Yet his underlining point lingers: Atlantic City is still far from being an all-purpose resort.  We need more attractions and we need them soon, in order to compete with PA slot parlors.

I am committed to fulfilling the promise of Atlantic City. The town would benefit from greater political participation by average citizens. Hopefully, some of the posts herein will encourage you to get more involved in your community. This blog will also feature other topics and subjects beyond Atlantic City. I hope that you will come to love Atlantic City as much, or more than I do.

One thought on “An Atlantic City Review

  1. Unfortunately, it’s a pretty fair review. But he didn’t mention the Walk or the Quarter. Those are now the two non-casino jewels of AC and he completely missed them. But nice things to say about service, so that’s a good point.
