Atlantic City

When did it become such a dump? I remember visiting a lot in the 2000s and early 2010s and while it wasn't in it glory days it wasn't the total shithole it is now. Attracted a lot more people too.

    I'm gonna be honest anon I don't fully believe that you've been because its always been rundown(It can still be fun though). I feel like people in their minds who've never been think it was thriving in the 60s and 50s because of TV or something, when in reality it started to decline after the depression. People are always asking what happen but in reality it's heyday was before your grandparents times. I still see people surprise its so bad when visiting

        Is that worth reading? I’m a huge SighSeegay and I really like 1850-1950 literature

          loved it, but I'm biased. I read it after my senior year of high school (≈Amory's age). If you're a handsome (important), young, and slightly autistic guy, it's a profound must-read.
          If you're not, ¯_(ツ)_/¯
          I can only recommend it if you're passionate about the golden age of culture. The book was an overnight success and you can glean some information from that.

    Man I live on the South Jersey shore for two years and it really is a depressing place to live in the winter time. It was kinda nice when I first visited at 18 but I left for a reason. Never spent too much time in AC as I did farther south because it was notorious for being a shitty place.

    went as a kid in the 80's, at least there was some semblance of the casinos keeping the surrounding areas fit for tourism. Really went to shit in the 90s as they pretty much stopped giving a frick about areas outside of the casinos, I would play video games at the arcades and you would have hordes of little kids running around sticking their hands into your pockets for quarters

        It's hasn't really gotten better but a couple better casinos have opened. There's also more concerts there than in the past. Not saying the city has gotten better but you'll see more people going down for the weekend than in the decades prior

          Yeah as a Jersey gay I find myself and other zillenials going there moreso then from I gather people would 10 years ago. They’ve done a decent job with their concert venues and I see a lot more people in my age demographic than I would ten years ago when I was in high school visiting with my parents

          AC has always been a shithole, it's one of the only beaches covered in drug syringes and cig butts. it's garbage because the overflow from trenton and camden, IE the portals to hell, moves there and infests it. It's not a city so much as a boardwalk adjoined to a slum, at best it's a den of vice offering smoke-clogged entertainment for a weekend to tour buses full of retirement home boomers looking for a dopamine hit on the slot machine floor. it's vegas for people too poor to travel to vegas. no one with decent intentions would ever set foot there and at best it's a novelty to christen your passage to adulthood. for a more specific answer, it's always been shit in the same way vegas has always been shit, but the demographics are let's say on the decline with the black plague, and when trump's casinos went bankrupt it put the final nail in the coffin.

          new jersey is a weird place, some parts of it are so wealthy you can't even buy a sandwich if you aren't a millionaire, and just a few miles down the highway it's a nigeria-tier slum. the nice places are highly gatekept to keep the growing refuse out, so the trash accumulates and putrefies in the low barrier to entry areas. some parts of the state the minimum house price is $2m, other parts you can buy a house for $20,000 even today. there's a reason for that. AC is just camden with casinos.

          North Jersey cities like Paterson and Newark are grossly exaggerated in terms of their blight, many companies and unis are headuartered in Newark and unless you are going way into inner city it’s not bad. Paterson is just beaner tier poverty and unless you venture out main and crooks street into the more melanin enriched areas you will be fine, some of the best sand food in the country is there and many adult oriented things that travel janitors don’t like can be found there too. Meanwhile places like Trenton, Camden, and AC are ireedeble hellscapes with the added misfortune of having filthynogia influence that region. The whites are on par with the joggers in certain areas of south jersey in terms of trashiness

            Yeah a big thing is the price of venue fees have skyrocketed in Recent years and Casinos will straight up pay you to perform their. A lot of Concerts that would be somewhere in New Jersey and Philadelphia end up in Atlantic City.
