    Wow! How the mighty have fallen.

    Everything from job market to housing market is now fucked. City's basically finished unless they can come up with new sources of revenue. It's the next Detroit.

    Nah, someone with money will pick up those casino licenses and properties for pennies on the dollar and make a mint.

    I don't know about that. Now that Philly has casinos, do people travel to AC that much?

    Atlantic City was fine until all these other casinos have been approved and have gotten up and running. Aqueduct Racetrack was one of the highest grossing casinos in the world for a while. You have Pennsylvania casinos, NY casinos, etc. Atlantic City didn't stand a chance. Plus, I think NY just got a pass for FIVE more casino's! Insane.

    NY and these other states are going to milk the gambling public with these cash cow casinos. People throw back their government and work money back to....the government.

    Still got a beach, swing clubs, strip clubs, massage parlors, event venues. They just have to shift the demographic they are going for, w/o going stupid high end like Revel. They aint getting the mid week seniors by the busload. They gotta target 30-50.

    Those Philly casinos are fine, but if I'm gambling all night at Parx, what do they slip me as a give back? They got no hotel to give a discounted room in, and the steak I had there was mediocre as shit.

    AC Gambling is literally like drugs, Whitey will come to the worst neighborhood to buy drugs, but once it is available anywhere else there is no reason to risk life and limb.
    Fuck AC, because for 30 years they could have cleaned up the city. It really is a disgrace. Nobody cares and there was no incentive.
    I'm not a limousine liberal, but I cringed at the mess when I had to go through AC to get to my favorite casino - they could literally make a Vice documentary there.

    Yeah. Outside the casinos is like 42nd street before Guiliani fucked it up. I have no problem with that.

    Who will be willing to invest millions into a shithole? They have already closed 2-3 casinos and a buyer can pick up licenses for cheap if they wanted to. But it's a losing business because casinos will be popping up across the NY state.

    I read recently (not sure which article) that one of the casinos I think Trump had a sale that fell through. The price was extremely low and the company still balked at the low price- the casino was deemed literally worthless.

    No one will. AC's demographics has changed. It's surrounded by ghettos and will be consumed by a ghetto once the rest of business move out. Why would anyone invest money in a ghetto? :dontknow:

    I went there in 1989. It was a good time. But it was crazy how you had all these casinos and stuff on the boardwalk and then go one block in from the boardwalk and it was a hellhole. My firend and I kind of embraced it. We actually parked in a lot several blocks from the casinos (call us nuts) and as we walked back to the car there was a bar that was just in the front of some guy's house. The sign just said BAR. We went in and met some guys with a lot of cool stories. Just old fuckers who liked to laugh.

    One of my best memories.

    No need to rent rooms. They just drive to their casino now and go home.
