    Quite amusing to read various poster's comments from 2 years ago, and now.

    LOL!

    Agreed. Even if there hadn't been a market downturn, it was far too large and glitzy for AC. I always preferred the Borgata.

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL Buh Bye Gambeling hello resort center!!! YEAH BABY! Seriously just get rid of the casino crap and turn it all into huge resorts, it's already half there. Now clean it up so it's not so grimy and smarmy. If you make it nice, nice people will come! Turn it into one giant performing arts complex... like our own version of urban tanglewood, a girl can dream. I'd live on the AC train if that were the case. Just really hate casinos.

    With the slot barns sitting right on the boardwalk, the infrastructure is there to convert the gussied up warehouses into art complexes and theaters. Maybe that's the route they should take. Anytime a near-dead city rebounds, people almost always say "the arts" moved in and fixed it up. Cheap rent, gritty streets, and bat-****-crazy history are all elements for a good, independent arts town.

    New Jersey needs to fully legalize marijuana inside the limits of Atlantic City and turn it into a weed resort destination. They'd make an absolute killing

    Expand and enhance the jitney service to run 24/7 and allow no other cars on Atlantic Avenue between 9am and 2am. No cars, just jitneys and bicycles. Clean up the town and beaches so they're as nice as the ones 40 minutes to the north. Maintain perhaps 1/3 of the gambling and focus on being a resort town.

    Maybe for a short time, but even then I wouldn't count on it. Everyone's watching Colorado and Washington. Don't count out one or more states east of the Mississippi legalizing recreational weed within the next five years. At least a couple have already decriminalized possession of small amounts, treating it like a minor speeding ticket.

    I kind of wish this was merged with the other AC thread because the same conversations are going on. I was mentioning over there that one of AC's biggest problems is that the state doesn't really understand how cities operate. I love the idea of jitneys on Atlantic Avenue. He11, even pedicabs and rickshaws. But AC's governing body needs to understand urbanism for any of that to happen, and NJ politicians can't wrap their heads around what it means to be a city.

    At best they're looking at AC as a Wildwoods with high-rises. At worst, they're looking at it as Cherry Hill with casinos. What they can't grasp is the city that it is. Just because AC doesn't have 100K residents doesn't mean that there aren't an awful lot of people there at any given time. The city is on the international radar and they don't even take advantage of that. It's a potential Las Vegas being run by Andy Griffith.

    And look at all the articles posted on these two threads. Has one been an article from a NJ newspaper? The Inquirer, the NYT, PhillyMag are all talking about the death of AC and what can be done to fix it, but for all I can tell, the only people in a place of power to actually do anything about AC's fate are burying their heads in the sand.

    That is why i restarted the ac revitalization thread because this isn't about the revel anymore it's about remaking AC.

    How is someone not just scooping that up and making it a condo development? Give people 3 or 4 rooms for $400k and let them rip them to pieces if they like. $20k a year in taxes and condo fees and you got a baller-ass community on the beach. Casino floor can be converted to a small boutique casino and retail/restaurants.
