It’s been many years since I was in Atlantic City. It’s a gambling mecca. It’s failing. Probably not. But it is (failing). Since I was here, many shops and restaurants have closed. The whole boardwalk is more sleazy as well as the rundown neighborhood behind the boardwalk. I have the impression the place is in foreclosure. Of course, it’s not. There’s plenty of money around and judging from the billboards, there are lots of headliners in the clubs. Sex, gambling, booze, and the beach, what a combination. But, I don’t think I will return. The last time I was here I lost $5 – to the parking fee. This time I found free street parking.
