I'm not entirely sure what happened to the other Mission...Articles thread, so I am starting a new one.
I have one about The Taj closing, of course:

BABBs closed it, and Wiz erased it? Just guessing ;-)
Yes, I will go read the articles.
The thread got lost?
Apparently. It's searchable on Google, but results in a 404. Some jokesters may have flagged it down. It was getting too long, anyway, so I'm not too concerned about having to start a new one. The only reason I would have a thread on the Forums promoting my own articles is because multiple people PM'ed me suggesting I do so.
In one your articles you mentioned being hit up a couple of times by panhandlers in A.C. when walking with food. I am curious as to whether or not you walked around the boardwalk and elsewhere at night, and whether or not you felt relatively safe. A.C. has in the past experienced a lot of crime and I've heard that casinos paid off the local media not to report on some of the worst incidents. To be fair; I don't know whether or not that is actually true. I've also heard that because of their crisis the police dept. has been stripped to bare bones staffing levels.
I would first request, with as much politeness as I can, that comments on articles be placed in the articles rather than this thread...but it's no big deal...happy to have you reading either way!
That said, here is my response:
Safety is a relative term. I'm a really big guy, so I'm not what one would consider a good target for robbery, at least I wouldn't think so, and I am also reasonably skilled when it comes to hand-to-hand combat, anyway. With that said, I probably wouldn't walk around AC too much after dark other than the Boardwalk and I did not walk anywhere at night other than the Boardwalk.
The Boardwalk seems reasonably well-trafficked after dark, but this was also before midnight, I probably wouldn't walk the Boardwalk too much after midnight. I felt perfectly safe walking the Boardwalk between 9p.m.-11p.m.
