Atlantic City…Always Turned On.

Atlantic City…Always Turned On.

 

Many things come to mind every time I drive into AC: In no particular order-

Sin, degenerate gamblers, Atlantic Ocean, drunken fools & high electric bills (Always Turned On)

I also remember my father’s  horrified tone when I told him I was moving from college to AC.  Mind you, we grew up in NYC…upper west side…drugs, gangs, roaches the size of rats and rats the size of dogs.  So, what could possibly happen in Atlantic City that didn’t already happen in New York City??? 

Answer:  Open air and beaches. 

My life was defined when I first set foot on a beach and smelled the salt air.  And, if I could make a living, a career and a name for myself then this was the place. 

You guys can make fun of AC all you like.  I do too.  It’s had a long history of corruption but so does Washington DC and no one has tried to shut them down.  So there. 

There is plenty of beauty here.  You only have to open your eyes and your mind.  (PS…and your wallets too!)
