I love Atlantic City because it is very ethnically diverse. However, the economy is going down and people are losing thousands of jobs. People are emigrating from this city because they cannot find enough source of income to provide for their families.

I LIKE THE PLACE I'M RENTING BECAUSE IT'S LOCATED NEAR THE BEACH. I LIKE THAT THE SHOPPING OUTLETS AND RESTAURANTS ARE WALKING DISTANCE. DON'T LIKE OUR PARKING CONDITIONS BECAUSE WE PAY FOR PERMITS AND OUTSIDE VISITORS PARK IN OUR AREAS EXCEEDING THE 3 HR TIME LIMIT AND NOT GETTING VIOLATION TICKETS!! IN ADDITION, THERE ARE EMPTY HOUSES ACROSS THE STREET AND THERE ARE DRUG DEALERS HANGING AROUND. BUT I'M GLAD WE HAVE A NEW MAYOR AND HE IS BUILDING OUR CITY BACK UP. I WOULD LOVE TO MOVE BACK TO CALIFORNIA SOMEDAY.

It's a good place to come to when it's warm. This city reaches its peak on the days the tourists and locals are at the beach, the upper-class folk are at their beach houses, when the city-goers come in by train and bolster the taxi business by trying to go everywhere. Only in the warmth is this place great.
