You know that Kennedy is in Queens, right?



Yes, I live very close to JFK & I am what you might call a very frequent flyer.

BTW, the 2 posts you quote are not related, the former had nothing to do with crime in AC.

Just thought it was an interesting story involving an AC gambler.

The difference between the strip is the AC boardwalk is simple. No one with any common sense would walk the AC boardwalk anywhere after 5PM alone today December 2nd, while I would have no such concerns 24/7 on the Vegas strip between Wynn and The Trop.

I would say after 9pm (there are plenty of boardwalk people trekking between Revel and Showboat and beyond) especially on weekends.

I have to agree with Boz and then the kind of melee you have to avoid in LV is drunken fights but in AC the kind of bad news you want to avoid is someone trying to liberate your money from you. This is almost always (bot not exclusively) a worse situation to be in.

Atlantic City Worries About Online Gaming
Will it give gamblers a reason to stay home?

"Online gaming and the alliance may be at cross purposes. The two-year-old alliance is spending $30 million a year to encourage visitors to come and spend money in the city’s casinos, restaurants, and hotels. One can’t “Do AC” – the name of the alliance’s marketing campaign that began last year – by staying home and gambling from an iPhone or laptop...

“Our view is that there will be some cannibalization, primarily in the poker room,” said gaming analyst John Kempf of RBC Capital Markets L.L.C. “But [online gaming] is not a very profitable area for the bricks-and-mortar casino. The cannibalization on the casino floor will be minimal."

"When you can gamble everywhere, it seems, nowhere in particular becomes the best place to gamble."

I hope "The cannibalization on the casino floor will be minimal", but how many times has the AC market been misread by the "experts"?

He'll get to keep what, $100K of it? That's life changing?

I agree it is a nice chunk of money that I would love, but not life changing.
