    Default Ugliest places in AC

    I picked up an AC Press today and there was an article about a "contest" to pick out the 10 ugliest spots in Atlantic City. This seems to be an idea of their mayor - wonderful - photograph and publish the most disgusting, run down, degenerate spots in the city in a newspaper that goes all over south jersey and is online for the rest of the world. AC has had a lot of money problems so you want to make it look really really unattractive for people who may want to go there.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that sees it the way you see it. Maybe they are TRYING to encourage people to go to the PA, NY and DE casinos? I wonder how long it will be before the pictures end up in ads for those out of state casinos?

    It seems only in New Jersey do we constantly work so hard at promoting the negative,while at the same time - ignoring, or letting others take credit for the positive.
    New Jersey is the only state honored by two resorts at Walt Disney World. The Beach Club Resort, modeled after Historic Cape May and The Boardwalk Resort, after Atlantic City. If the Jersey Shore is good enough for Walt Disney to recreate, isn't the REAL Jersey Shore even better for you and your family?

    BTW - I've never seen Las Vegas or Orlando have a contest to highlight their slums - and believe me - they have them. Atlantic City needs to be fixed up in parts - but this contest is not going to help it achieve that end.
