36 Hours in Atlantic City

July 19, 2019 | Ny Times

Atlantic City’s boom-and-bust cycle has been in motion for decades now, with new casinos and restaurants sowing high hopes for revitalization, followed by mass closings, and then the whole thing happening on repeat.

The longtime pleasures of Atlantic City — the gambling, the funnel cake and the amusements — never change and should be enjoyed to the fullest. And, if you can squeeze in a whiskey from an innovative local distillery, an oyster happy hour and a stimulating museum on African-American history at the same time, consider it a bonus.
