What Bert Has To Say About Atlantic City-Hammonton Metro Area

Atlantic City lies on a barrier island on the south coast of New Jersey. Once a popular resort area for residents of New York and Philadelphia from the 1850’s, (the street names in the board game “Monopoly” are taken from downtown streets), the city went into decline after World War II as better travel and transportation services made other destinations accessible. The return to legalized gambling in the late 1970s was a partially successful attempt to revive the earlier prominence.
