The boardwalk skyline - to a real Jersey shore person, AC isn't the same. Not like Wildwood or Ocean City or Sea Isle. But it does have a real Jersey shore style boardwalk and the ocean. It also, unfortunately, has the casinos which were supposed to revitalize the city the way it was in the Steel Pier heyday. Instead, the city is an armpit 2 blocks from the boards, and even on the boards, mixed with everyone else are the hookers, homeless, and people who have bet their homes and cars away, begging for a ride. Still a beautiful ocean, isn't it?
