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.

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.

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.
