I took a drive down to Atlantic City roughly a week and a half after Hurricane Sandy as the Governor said it was open to the public. The traffic was light and the city looked almost deserted. The boardwalk and casinos were just as barren as the streets but there were a few people wandering around. 

Most of the city was cleaned and didn’t even look as if anything had happened. Further north of the casinos was a different story, parts of the boardwalk was destroyed and was visibly apparent that that area was still in need of cleanup.

  1. I’ve never been to Atlantic City, but I really want to…it seems like the Las Vegas of the East Coast. The photos show that the city looks like a genuinely unique place, though it’s eye-opening how there’s still damage from the hurricanes. Thanks so much for sharing!
