People who live in nyc say they are scared of earthquakes wen going to california

People who live in california say they are scared of getting mugged or worse when going to nyc

Truth is while both can occur no one living in the immediate areas obsess about it. Earthquakes and nyc crime happen infrequently enough the residents live normal lives

Here we hav a lot of people from outside ac imagining all the crime that goes on. Im sure the ac residents are laughing at this thread



Not that many residents laughing " Atlantic City has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes "

Interesting question. I would say she exhibits a high degree of caution. She is very careful about where she parks. If it's night and she's leaving a party and driving alone she gets a friend to walk with her to the car. She's very cautious about having too much to drink in public places or leaving a drink untended. She does not carry mace, pepper spray, or any type of weapon.

That's a bullshit statistic because it goes by crimes per resident. Few towns or cities the size of AC have a tourist population that doubles the cities size on a daily basis.
It has 39,000 residents, add another 25,000 tourists and 5,000 employees in the casinos.
It's what you do and not what you say If you're not part of the future then get out of the way

My mistake. I thought the visitors came to gamble, and employees to work, and not to commit crimes My bad.

No it isn't "bullshit". A.C. has gangs,drugs and a host of other problems. Why do you think they installed Shotspotter gunfire detection system to hear seagulls fart?

Perception of safety is dominated really by women. If women don't feel safe, they wont go near a place, and anybody with them will go somewhere else. That's the secret of the marina district's success.

I don't know if it truly is dominated by woman or not.
A lot of guys aren't very keen on bad neighborhoods.

You don't know, but I do know it's mostly women that make or break an area. That's why women like to have big, strong men to keep them safe. If you're not, they'll just want to be friends with you.

I would say that Atlantic City is the only place I've ever gambled at that I truly felt unsafe. Walking Atlantic Ave between Tropicana and Caesars at 2am is particularly not fun. Add the fact that I have $1000 in my pocket (a lot less than most of you I'm sure) and you start wondering what the he'll you're doing. I think it's different to compare it to any standard big city because generally in those other cities, a big percentage of the population doesn't have large amounts of cash with them.

AC is a total dump. It's so poorly designed. I don't know why anybody would ever want to go there except to gamble. It should never be mentioned in the same sentence as Vegas. They should blow the whole thing up and start again.
