The AC gambling revenue used to be higher than Vegas.

The old ladies would come in on a bus with socks full of nickels.  I'm not kidding.

The hotel would pull a few (3 if I remember) million on a weekend day.  The average daily rate was about $400.

I don't remember the numbers but 7 wasn't an unheard of number.

Sort of.

The Casino Control Commision barred any organized crime members and were actually very good at finding them.  The "cousin of a guy" folks would come in and pretend to be big shots.  Eyes were rolled.

A lot.  Almost all were natural causes.

Trying to pretend that I cared they couldn't get a room on the 5th floor instead of the 8th, room ended in an odd number, etc.

For the hours and stress, no.

Corruption, in New Jersey?  Regulation and oversight did very well to keep it down.  It absolutely existed, though.

I was in the hotel side, but we had a "preacher" who would clean out the room every time he stayed.  We finally caught him carting all the room items to the parking garage in a room service cart.

Negotiating with a woman who insisted a black restaurant manager was racist because the cheesesteak she ordered wasn't big enough.

I could have watched that fat, red in the faced woman raise her blood pressure all day.  It was glorious.

Is Robert DeNiro's body still laying next to his burning Cadillac in your parking lot?



Does Joe Pesci still stop in the bar on weekends and randomly stab people with a pen he found on the floor?

No.  I did get to take a report from a guy who got stabbed with a pen in the neck by a hooker, though.  He wanted compensation because she robbed him (there is lots of that).  He came to the front in a bloody robe with the pen sticking out of his neck.

Can you tell me if the casino was Left or Right of Caesars as you came into AC????

While My Mother was alive I'd drive her to the Casino's once a month.

I'm ALWAYS going to remember the one Gal, 40's, who was playing Three Machines at once.  I cannot recall if she had a card in each machine or not. She hit the second highest jackpot possible.  She was going Whoop! Whoop! like you would have seen on Arsenio Hall. The Jackpot was delivering quarters and she was taking them out of the bin as they fell into it.  From the bin straight into the two other machines who were quiet.

She no doubt would brag to friends and family about her jackpot, never noticing she came back with Much Less money than when she left.

No kidding.

There was the one time when I had to take a different route than I usually did to get to our hotel.  The streets were Horrible!  I've been on dirt roads that were in better shape.

Lived there after I started working there.  The section 8 housing started getting pushed out of AC itself.  After living there and going to Philly so much, I would always wonder what people were talking about when they said Denver had such shitty areas.

I like the Borgata and used to go to AC a lot back in the day. Used to only go to Showboat in the 90's then discovered that the bayside was the better area. Actually went on a trip this past December...haven't been in close to 10 years....wow a ghost town. Granted it was the middle of the week and winter but still.

As I recall we went there only once or twice; we just didn't care for it.
Plus it was away from the rest of the ocean front.

At the end of the day, and after we had our fill at the Buffet (we preferred the Showboat), my Mother would rest up in the room.  I would then take a nice little walk via (checking a map here) The Boardwalk and Pacific Avenue.  The west end was the Tropicana with the east end Showboat.  She enjoyed the casino I enjoyed the walk.

Harrah's was where I went when I felt like gambling.

Lst time I was in AC it was after half the police and fire department got downsized.  It was like the wild west.  Unless it was a violent crime in progress, you may as well wait until the next day to do a walk in report.
