Irish guy here, what's the deal with the place?
Is this GFC fallout or something else?
The place looks grim as fuck.
AC has been in very poor shape for decades afaik, and has been the subject of who knows how many government efforts to revive it.
The GFC probably hurt but Superstorm Sandy probably hurt more.
Its long been the case that away from the Casinos the city is pretty much an.
The urban prairie you see there may or may not have existed before flooding during Sandy, neither would surprise me.
AC's heyday was in the 1940s-50s.
The legalization of gambling in the 1970s was a desperate attempt to bring tourism back to the city and make AC the "Vegas of the East".
It succeeded, for a while.
But even in the heyday of gambling in AC in the '80s and abandoned casinos atlantic city, the benefits of the tourism economy didn't trickle down where have we heard that before?
And when Native American-run casinos started opening up elsewhere, that was it.
AC is now once more circling the drain.
Why drive an hour and a half or two hours when you can gamble in your own back yard.
I lived in Delaware in the '80s and '90s and back then AC was the place to go.
Now there are places closer by.
I've lived in the Boston area since about 2000 and here people go to Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods.
Not me, gambling was never my thing.
That abandoned casinos atlantic city, until Pennsylvania loosened its gaming laws and Indian Casino in Connecticut was built.
New Yorkers can go to Foxwoods in a much nicer area.
I've heard magazines listing Foxwoods as the nicest Indian casino in America.
Basically, this is the result of "putting lipstick on a pig".
Revel was meant to spark the AC economy, where it really just dug a bigger hole for itself.
EDIT: pictures, grammar, stuff While all the aspects you listed are accurate to the failings of AC, Revel itself suffered more from their own poor decisions.
Great if you are still attracking the upscale NYC click at this page, but that doesn't work with lower-middle class South Jersey and Philly.
I did have my bachelor party there and it was awesome.
The place was incredible, but damn was it expensive.
Also the rooms where all dirty upon check-in.
The shift manager confided that the morning crew were all lazy and didn't clean when guests checked out.
Revel opened on April 2, 2012, and became the third of four casinos in 2014 which https://advokatof.ru/atlantic-city/harrahs-atlantic-city-casino-promotions.html on September 2, 2014 after declaring for the second time.
However Brookfield Management backed-out of this deal on November 19, 2014.
On January 8th 2015, Gleen Straub announced he wanted to build the largest water park in the world with the former Revel building.
Also he announced he want to have a high speed ferry from New York City to The Resort.
There is no reopen date set yet.
Will also delete on comment score of -1 or less.
We go to AC every once in a while for a weekend, usually during the summer because of the beach.
A couple of the hotels and casinos on the boardwalk are still pretty active, but if you go out of a certain small range continue reading turns to shit.
Even the mob left it's so bad.
Usually if we want to go to a casino, we usually go to Foxwoods which in Connecticut.
Hurricane Sandy also did a number.
The boardwalk got pretty fucked up.
Same with Seaside, you've probably seen the picture of th roller coaster in the water.
Then a lot of it caught on fire months later.
Sandy had almost no effect on the casino section of the boardwalk.
It affected a further south section beyond the main casino district.
At 710 feet in height, the tower is the tallest in the city, second tallest in the state of New Jersey, second tallest casino building in the country, and most likely the tallest structure on the Atlantic coast between New York and Miami.
I filmed these panoramas from the building in May 2014, four months before the resort closed.
Note how this is less than half the building's height, yet it already puts you level with the tops of most of the other hotels on the skyline.
I was lucky that I had this unique observatory experience before it was gone.
Waking up 300 feet above the ocean, with the sun rising over a vast blue expanse.
I went there for two or three days and it was terrible!
I stayed at Revel for a long weekend a week after their soft opening.
By far the nicest casino on the boardwalk.
It's a shame they couldn't make it work.
I guess it was just TOO nice for AC.
I mean Borgata is also super nice, but it's too far away from the rest of the casinos.
I don't remember what subreddit it was in I tried searching but couldn't find it.
Anyways, it was a closeup of that building with a painted red portion attached to it.
The single house by the sandy lot?
It has 3 small apartments.
My friend fixed it up after Sandy.
I was considering renting a unit, but didn't.
FWIW, I've walked that street directly adjacent to the building- between it and the houses there.
Couldnt help but feel like the little houses' days were numbered.
And am glad to see that isnt the case.
