P E N D S O M E T I M E I N A T L A N T I C C I T Y A M I D I T S F L A S H Y C A S I N O S , the fine r esta u r ants , and the rolling beaches and Boardwalk, and you can’t help but marvel at how far the resort has come. But every step you take is still gently haunted by all that has been here before. Atlantic City wears its history like a comfortable old coat — tattered, but comfortable. From its days as a “health” resort in the 19th century, to its naughty and haughty days of irreverence during Prohibition (highlighted in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire) to its eventual decline and then rebirth as an East Coast gambling mecca, Atlantic City and the region has been attracting visitors since its inception. In this issue, our first “Then & Now” issue, we look at Atlantic City’s long journey to get to this point in time. We look at a resort thriving and alive, from its driving nightclubs to its packed showrooms. And we look at its ghosts, from bosses like “Nucky” Johnson to the crowds at Captain Starn’s and Grace’s Little Belmont. As Atlantic City braces for a challenging future, the Queen of Resorts brings those ghosts and some of that past magic along for the ride. It’s a magic that never really leaves.

Excerpts from inside this issue & online at â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonder how many of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s casino headliners and concert attractions will have the staying power of four members of [Resortsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;} Class of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;78 who still rotate in and out of the casinos on a fairly regular basis, like Don Rickles, Bill Cosby, Frankie Valli and Neil Sedaka?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; p. 12 â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe you can compare a decade like the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;20s to today. Society was completely different. Clearly there was much more formality in terms of design and dressing as opposed to today, where we are a completely liberal and informal society.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; p. 30


â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seashore history is slippery â&#x20AC;&#x201D; some accounts place Capone and his fellow delegates at the President, andWRITER Nuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s digs, on the Ritzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eighth floor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but by any FROM TERENCE WINTER, EMMY AWARD-WINNING OF THE SOPRANOS AND ACADEMY AWARD -WINNING DIRECTOR MARTIN SCORSESE measure, the 1920s roared extra loud in Atlantic City.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; p. 38 ÂŽ














â&#x20AC;&#x153;We think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be hard pressed to find a market, which has seen a more ATLANTIC CITY, 1920 dynamic, exponential amount of growth in such a short time frame.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; p. 40 Join us on Facebook:

Prohibition-era Bottles Discovered in Pennsylvania, then Somers Point.

With Boardwalk Empire shining a light on Prohibition-era Atlantic City, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget that A.C. wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only place affected by the nationwide alcohol ban. When Somers Pointâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike â&#x20AC;&#x153;Docâ&#x20AC;? Dougherty and his brother-in-law were doing work on an old carriage house they bought back in the 1960s (pictured) in Wissahickon, Pa., they stumbled upon more than a dozen Prohibition-era vest-pocket whiskey bottles. Luckily for us, AC Weekly stumbled upon Doughertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home during a community-wide yard sale in Somers Point recently and found his old cardboard box full of 16 empty glass bottles among the sale items. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the stories I had heard from the old timers that had lived in the area for many years,â&#x20AC;? says Dougherty, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the home I had purchased from ABOVE: Some of the bottles an old couple was at one time a low-key, [weekend-only] speakeasy.â&#x20AC;? found in a Pennsylvania home (below) in the 1970s. According to Dougherty, who was gracious enough to talk about the bottles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; after we purchased them, of course â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on more than one occasion with AC Weekly, the Pennsylvania home he bought decades after Prohibition ended used to be a carriage house, which was situated right next to a pharmacist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The druggist actually kept the horse and carriage in there,â&#x20AC;? says Dougherty, who found blacksmith tools and other horse-stable remnants along with the bottles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The front of the building had a canvas on it and that would come down in the front. Whenever the druggist had prescriptions to deliver or whatever heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just go over there, pull the canvas up, and bring the horse and carriage out and go deliver the prescriptions. Everything was all in one big room. And on the weekends guys would come there, they would play cards, socialize, and get their bottle of whiskey. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going back to the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;20s. It was not a well-known speakeasy; it was a neighborhood type of thing.â&#x20AC;? During Prohibition, it was still legal for doctors to prescribe alcohol and some of it leaked out into the many speakeasies around the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They had a pot-belly stove in there that they would fire up, a little coal-fired stove or something,â&#x20AC;? adds Dougherty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And one day what happened was they had a chimney fire. So that was the end of the speakeasy. The fire did a lot of damage to the back wall. It was a chimney fire, so [the druggist must have] taken the stove out and tossed the bottles in the clean-out base of the chimney. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where the bottles were found and how a lot of them got smoke [white film] inside of them. I never washed them out; they say you should never wash them out.â&#x20AC;? Likely everybody had their own bottle at the speakeasy, adds Dougherty, because all of the bottles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to this day â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have their cork intact, which is rare to find. Dougherty has been intrigued by the bottles since finding them in the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s when he was working on his then-new home. He got scraps of information over they years about the bottles and they came with him to the Jersey shore when he moved down here. Dougherty also found two coins dated 1918, a wheat penny and a Liberty dime, underneath one of the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s window frames he was working on. Dougherty learned that back in the early 1900s such coins were used to level windows when constructing homes. That both coins are dated 1918, and that the whiskey bottles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of various sizes and shapes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; were found with corks intact (with little or no writing or marks on the bottles), and that the neighborhood old-timers confirmed that the old carriage house was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;low-keyâ&#x20AC;? speakeasy, makes us think that these bottles are the real deal. Prohibition-era bottles, found at the Jersey shore, but originally discovered in Pennsylvania. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I kept the bottles 50 years,â&#x20AC;? says Dougherty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But long gone now are the days of the Roaring â&#x20AC;&#x2122;20s, Prohibition, and the original carriage house speakeasy.â&#x20AC;? Thanks Doc, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take good care of them. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jeff Schwachter

Poker Lowdown by Mike Pritchard


HE CITY’S POKER ROOMS have had to brace for a new onslaught of competition as casinos in Pennsylvania and Delaware added poker rooms in recent weeks. But, apparently, their biggest competition still comes from each other. The perfect example may be unfolding at the Taj Mahal, which is currently holding the United States Poker Championship (U.S.P.C.) through Nov. 22. So far, the championship has been seeing very small turnouts for its opening events. Despite being the oldest tournament in the city, the event has struggled to attract players. The championship began last week strongly enough when 159 players turned out for the $360 buy-in No Limit Hold’em first event. Not a bad start for a Monday morning tournament. But since then most of the events have drawn well under 100 players. Friday’s $550 buy-in No limit event drew only 48 entrants. Saturday’s $550 No Limit event did a little better, drawing 144 entrants and a $76,840 prize pool. But Sunday’s $550 seven-card stud tournament only attracted 38 players. Part of the reason may be that the Taj is offering only one event in the championship each day, usually with a morning start. In the evenings, the Taj’s regular tournament schedules — usually $50 buy-ins weekdays and $100 to $200 weekends — are still being offered. That’s a different approach than, say, the Borgata’s various seasonal opens, where regular tournament play is suspended and several smaller tournaments are scheduled as part of the open for afternoon and evening play. More events may translate into more players. But one of the biggest challenges the Taj is facing may come from another strategy the Borgata uses. Namely, aggressively running special tournaments that effectively counter-programmed the championship. The Borgata scheduled a special fall Deepstack series through Nov. 14. The opener, Nov. 4, was a $200 buyin tournament that drew 266 players for a $53,200 prize pool. The Taj event that day, a $360 buy-in, drew only 65 players. The second Borgata Deepstack event Friday (Nov. 5) drew 237 entries and a Join us on Facebook:

$71,100 prize pool, the same day the U.S.P.C. attracted only 48 players. You may be noticing a trend and it’s clear that more tournament players were attracted to the Borgata Deepstacks than the early U.S.P.C. events. Throw in reports that those Delaware and Pennsylvania poker rooms are drawing very well and you can see the city’s poker rooms have a dogfight on their hands to attract players, even to special events. And the enemy is everywhere. But that’s not necessarily a doom and gloom situation. Being in a dogfight doesn’t mean you have to lose. Harrah’s Entertainment, for example, has shown that the city’s best poker marketing ploy, its string of bad-beat jackpots, can still bring in the crowds. Harrah’s combined bad-beat jackpot hit Thursday night (Nov. 4) at $532,236, making it the fourth largest bad-beat jackpot in Atlantic City’s short bad-beat history. Until it hit, the jackpot was probably also attracting play away from the Taj. The winner/bad-beat loser was player Edward Pietrzak, who saw his quad sixes lose to quad 10s at about 7:30pm Thursday at Harrah’s Resort. He wins $160,000. The winner of the hand, William Jacobsen wins $107,000. More importantly, 372 players in Harrah’s Entertainment’s four poker rooms — Harrah’s Resort, Caesars, Bally’s and Showboat — win $713 a piece. Harrah’s instituted the combined bad beat precisely to build up some excitement for their poker rooms. In June, when the Taj Mahal’s bad beat went to a record $670,000, the casino saw jam-packed action 24/7 for a couple of weeks. Harrah’s rooms began to see some of the same bad-beat-mania as their jackpot creeped up over $500,000. The bad beat was reset to $199,000 after it hit and is already at $232,000. But the minimum hand for the bad beat was reset to four queens (it dips a notch every Wednesday), another strategy to allow the jackpot to climb. Hey, if it gets the players in, more power to it.

Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Belmont

Not quite as well known as its neighbor across the street, Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Belmont was nonetheless an integral part of Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s once-vibrant Kentucky Avenue nightclub scene. By Ray Schweibert

Recorded at Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in 1966 sometimes drop his son off with Grace Daniels if he had business elsewhere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My father was very good friends with Hernan Daniels, and maintained an alliance with Grace after Hernan passed away,â&#x20AC;? says Nick Nicholson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She not only had Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Belmont downstairs, she also had a beauty salon upstairs next to her apartment, and when I was a kid and my father had to go somewhere, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always leave me with Miss Grace â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so she was sort of like halfway babysitting me. She had a beautiful apartment. There was some outstanding mahogany furniture up there.â&#x20AC;? Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Belmont, says Nicholson, was smaller than Club Harlem and featured a horseshoe-style bar off the entrance. One of its barmaids was Elvera â&#x20AC;&#x153;Babyâ&#x20AC;? Sanchez, a former Vaudeville singer and dancer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the mother of Sammy Davis Jr. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Baby Sanchez [who passed away in 2000 at age 95] was good friends with my mother, and she was a very talented entertainer in her own right back in the

day,â&#x20AC;? says Nicholson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were usually about five barmaids that pretty much got locked into that horseshoe bar, because Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business was mostly people coming in off the beach for the matinee shows and the night shows that they did, and the place would get so crowded they basically got trapped. Even though she had some booths in that area, it would get so crowded that the barmaids couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get through and had to wait on people from behind the bar. [Sanchez] did a bang-up business from back there.â&#x20AC;? Gambling was far from being legalized in Atlantic City back then, but nearly every nightclub and bar had some form of it going on, says Nicholson. In between Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and an establishment called Jerryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Barbecue was an alley where a popular game of chance took place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People would play a game called the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;skin gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; [for a hilarious take on this, read The Skin Game and Other Atlantic City Capers by Joseph Wilkins]. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t legal, but as long as people behaved themselves [the police] pretty much looked the other way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were a lot of things that were looked the other way back then,â&#x20AC;? adds Nicholson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A whole lot of stuff was going on, and the women were the key to the whole thing. You had Larry Steeleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Smart Affairs Dancers [at Club Harlem], the waitresses everywhere were all very, very attractive young ladies, and when you had the women there â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that attracted the men.â&#x20AC;?

back and fourth between Club Harlem and Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Belmont. They sort of fed off one another. Club Harlem was the keynote on that street and had a 6 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock breakfast show there. Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s featured a really popular artist in the summertime named Wild Bill Davis, who had done some things with Duke Ellington.â&#x20AC;? Davis is also credited with helping to popularize the Hammond B-3 organ as a jazz instrument, and his arrangement of the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;April in Parisâ&#x20AC;? was made into a huge hit by the Count Basie Orchestra in 1955. The Wild Bill Davis Swing Organ Quartet recorded two live albums at Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Belmont, the first coming in 1966 when Davis teamed with his friend and tenor saxophonist Johnny Hodges, a member of the Duke Ellington Orchestra. (Hear real sounds from Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Belmont circa 1966 on the online version of this story at In 1967 he recorded another album, Midnight To Dawn, there. Davis would end every live show with what would become his signature song. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The song that he ended every show with was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;April In Paris,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d wrap up each show by saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Not anutha futha,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Nicholson, a drummer who would occasionally sit in with the Wild Bill Davis Quartet as a young man. Ikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corner on Tennessee Avenue (about two blocks north) was owned by Nicholsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father and encompassed a bar, a liquor store and 10 apartments. The senior Nicholson also owned a record shop called Ikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Records across from Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Belmont, and would

PEND SIGNIFICANT TIME anywhere in the nation and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll likely hear locals lament about how times have changed, and how the good old days are long gone. Newcomers may brush this aside as wistful drivel, but so often the nostalgia associated with Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s past is spoken of with a special brand of sincerity â&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly a section of Kentucky Avenue between Arctic and Atlantic avenues. The area was known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;KY and the Curb,â&#x20AC;? and became a jazz mecca and the premier nightclub district for Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s African-American residents and tourists in the mid-1900s. But because the district didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really start heating up until others were winding down, visitors of all races and walks of life would flock there from the far corners of town to a warm welcome. The centerpiece was Club Harlem, but directly across the street was a highly popular hangout called Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Belmont. That club, owned by Hernan Daniels and his wife, Grace, thrived from the mid-1930s through the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the 500 Club [further south on Missouri Avenue, and famously owned by Paul â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Skinnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amato] and others let out, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much when Club Harlem and Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little Belmont would just be getting started,â&#x20AC;? says Ike â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nickâ&#x20AC;? Nicholson, stage manager/music director for a summer series of Boardwalk jazz shows put on by the Chicken Bone Beach Historical Society since 2000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the employees and the people at the 500 would come up to Kentucky, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be bouncing

CALL IT, SIMPLY, “THE LIST.” I can’t remember how, when or under what circumstances I acquired it, but it’s proven to be an invaluable tool over the past decade. “The List” contains the names of every headliner that worked Resorts Atlantic City from opening day in 1978 through the end of 1998. So when Atlantic City Weekly editor Jeff Schwachter told me the theme for this week’s special edition was “Then and Now” — looking at the past and comparing it to the present — I immediately consulted “The List.” It didn’t take long to determine an approach. The answer lay hidden within the hundreds of names on “The List.” So, using the oldest and newest casinos (Resorts and Borgata) as our measuring stick, let’s take a look at entertainment in 1978, when Atlantic City broke Nevada’s monopoly on legal casino gaming, and today, when Atlantic City is one of the many dozens of American cities, towns, hamlets and unincorporated areas (read: Indian reservations) where gaming is just another leisure-time activity. Then: Of the 28 “name” acts that worked the former Resorts International Hotel Casino during the second half of 1978 — gaming began in late May of that year — I was surprised that, more than 32 years later, 19 of them are still with us, including the grand dame of comedy Phyllis Diller, who’s still cracking wise at 93. Some of the greats have left us, though, including he who went by the moniker “The Great One” — Jackie Gleason — along with “The Great Dane,” comedian and concert pianist Victor Borge, Danny Thomas and one of my personal favorites, comedian Flip Wilson. Now: I wonder how many of today’s casino headliners and concert attractions — Lady Gaga, Aaron Lewis of Staind, Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas and comedian Lisa Lampanelli — will have the staying power of four members of the Class of ’78 who still rotate in and out

of the casinos on a fairly regular basis, like Don Rickles, Bill Cosby, Frankie Valli and Neil Sedaka? Then: In the early years of the gaming era, catching two shows in one night was not only possible, it was easy. Resorts (and the first few casinos that followed) usually offered shows at 8 and 11:30pm. So seeing a show at Resorts and then moseying on down to the former (Caesars) Boardwalk Regency left plenty of time to enjoy a drink and catch a lounge act in between. Now: In 1981, former Golden Nugget owner Steve Wynn pretty much forced the state to revise the regulation that required casinos to present some form of main showroom entertainment seven nights a week all year long. Wynn’s contention that allowing the casinos to determine when entertainment should be presented — and not the state — would ultimately lead to more shows in Atlantic City, not less, and he was right. Some casinos began presenting shows on weekends only and saved the full-week gigs for the busier summer months. Others ran fixedcost revues during the week and saved the stars for weekends. When Borgata opened in 2003, it adopted — with a few exceptions — an entertainment policy built largely on one-night-stands. Instead of presenting the same act for two or

three nights, it virtually guaranteed itself a fresh customer turnover each day by presenting two or three different acts in its Music Box and Event Center venues. Today, most of the headliner shows in town are one-nighters. Then: No â&#x20AC;&#x153;then and nowâ&#x20AC;? comparison would be complete without mentioning a price tag. In 1979, when I began speaking to community and civic groups about Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s born-again entertainment scene, I regularly got gasps when I pointed out that a night on the town in Atlantic City â&#x20AC;&#x201D; dinner and a show â&#x20AC;&#x201D; could easily approach $100. In â&#x20AC;&#x2122;78, Resorts occasionally offered dinner shows. For one price â&#x20AC;&#x201D; usually $35 to $50 per person, depending on the act â&#x20AC;&#x201D; guests could enjoy a prix-fixe meal in the Superstar Theatre and wash it all down with a big-name act without leaving their seats. (While I never had time to sit through an entire dinner show, I wish I had the recipe for the chocolate mousse that a friendly server used to slip me when I came in to catch the show. No way was that a mix!) Now: One hundred bucks for a night on the town? Chump change; you could spend that, and more, on tips alone today. Two summers ago, when The Join us on Facebook:

Eagles tore up the Event Center at Borgata with one of the best casino shows Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever seen, the best seats in the house went for a cool $500 each; the cheap seats were only $195. So letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say it was date night, and you wanted to impress your lady or your guy. The show alone would have set you back a grand. Dinner for two at chef Michael Minaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SeaBlue restaurant could easily top $300, especially if you sprung for drinks, appys, the lobster pot pie and the Kobe steak and dessert. (More â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a lot more â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if the appy was a flight of Beluga caviar.) Then, just to keep the party going after the Eagles show, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say you visited mur.mur, the Borgataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subterranean nightclub. There, bottle service is almost de rigueur and a full bottle of Belvedere vodka is $340. As of right now, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all-in for about $1,700. Oh, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to save five bucks for parking. N

In the end, the CCC granted a permanent license to Elsinore and denied one to Playboy due to concerns about Playboyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s London casino operations. As a result, Playboy sold its shares to Elsinore.

VER SINCE THE OPENING OF THE CITYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S first casino, Resorts International, on May 26, 1978, the gaming industry has become a very important part of Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall history and culture. Along with Resorts, there are 10 other casinos operating currently in Atlantic City: Caesars, Ballyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resort, and the Showboat (all owned by Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Entertainment), the Hilton, Tropicana, Borgata and the three Trump Entertainment properties â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Trump Plaza, Trump Marina and Trump Taj Mahal. These 11 casinos, however, are not the only ones that have existed in Atlantic City since gambling was legalized. Here is a look at the Atlantic City casinos that were. 2007: Sands implosion Opened originally as the Brighton Casino on Aug. 31, 1980, this casino was taken over and converted quickly into the former Sands Hotel and Casino by May 1981. At its peak, the Sands brought in top performers such as Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan and Robin Williams. Eventually, however, coming upon hard times, the Sands filed for bankruptcy in 1998. Purchased by Pinnacle Entertainment in 2006, the casino closed on Nov. 11 of that year. At the time of its closing, Sands was the smallest of all the casinos in Atlantic City. On Oct. 18, 2007, accompanied by a fireworks show, the Sands was imploded in the East Coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first ever casino-hotel implosion. (See implosion video at While Hugh Hefner Playboy casino and his bunnies are still alive and well, the casino bearing the same name as his magazine, Playboy Casino, is no longer. The Playboy faced many obstacles even before its opening in Atlantic City. Facing monetary concerns and needing $135 million in financing, Playboy Casino took on the Elsinore Corporation as a partner. The casino was issued a temporary permit by the Casino Control Commission (CCC) on April 4, 1981 and the cocktail bunnies opened the casino doors for business on April 14, 1981.

Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Fair

After the close of the Atlantis Casino, Donald Trump purchased the property for $63 million and operated it as the Trump Regency, a non-casino hotel. Then, following a regulations change that allowed Trump to own four casinos, he re-opened the property on April 15, 1996 as Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Fair at Trump Plaza. Just a short three years later, claiming he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turning a profit, Trump closed his World Fair and the casino was demolished in 2001. Currently the land is empty and owned by a condominium developer.

Golden Nugget Atlantic City

Steve Wynn bought and tore down the Strand Motel on Boston Avenue and the Boardwalk to construct Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth casino, the Golden Nugget Atlantic City, which opened on Dec. 11, 1980. By 1983 it was Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top earning casino. Following licensing troubles and rumors surrounding connections with organized crime, Wynn decided to sell the Golden Nugget to Ballyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Entertainment Corporation and it became Ballyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand and then the Grand. In 1996 it was sold to Hilton and opened as the Atlantic City Hilton.

After having bought out Playboy, Elsinore Corporation took off the casinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bunny ears and replaced Playboyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous logo with a seashell. After it closed, Playboy Casino was renamed the Atlantis Casino and opened in the summer of 1984, but did not fare much better than its predecessor, nor that of its namesake â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the lost island of Atlantis. Just one year later, the Atlantis filed for bankruptcy. In 1989, following a previous hearing that denied the Atlantis a new license, the CCC ordered the Atlantis to shut down stating it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;no more able to conduct itself in a businesslike manner than it was at the casino license hearing,â&#x20AC;? making it A.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first casino to go out of business.

Atlantic City’s Gambling Legacy Placing a bet in Atlantic City is as old as strolling the Boardwalk By Michael Pritchard


NYONE WHO THINKS GAMBLING in Atlantic City can be traced back to the opening of the Resorts Casino in 1978 is cutting out a huge portion of the resort’s gaming history. Atlantic City’s history of back-room casinos and gambling dens is as old as the city’s Boardwalk. Still, gambling went through a dry spell as the city began to decline in the 1950s and ’60s and was reborn on that May 26, 1978 opening of Resorts. Here’s a look at the action Atlantic City has offered since it’s earliest days.

Then: Philadelphia newspapers were complaining about Atlantic City’s illegal gambling houses and brothels as early as the 1890s. In truth, the city was offering gambling action from its inception. In those early days, the most popular games were roulette, poker and faro, a simple French card game based on betting on cards drawn by the dealer. Poker games would have been the more traditional stud and draw versions, though community card games such as Hold’em began to emerge in the 1920s. Craps was also popular in the city’s horse rooms. Gambling could be found in the city’s storefronts, restaurants and nightclubs, each serving a different class of gamblers. Atlantic City’s long history of back room gambling was summed up well in 1951 when a congressional report on illegal gambling was released. Atlantic City was one of the medium sized cities highlighted. The committee’s final report, issued Aug. 31, 1951, concluded that Atlantic City

was “riddled with rackets, including nearly every known type of gambling” from bingo to the numbers [illegal lottery].” The report said nearly every cigar store in town was a front for a bookie and that the city, then under the control of powerful State Sen. Frank S. “Hap” Farley,

Hold’em-style poker began to emerge in the 1920s. Craps was also popular back then. refused to enforce anti-gambling laws. Now: Atlantic City recaptured some of its history when casino gambling was legalized in 1978 and a steady stream of glitzy casinos was built through the 1980s and ’90s. Most every game the city offered in its illegal heyday (except faro) is being offered again in the resort. But one of the biggest changes may be the reliance on slot machines. While blackjack grew in popularity from the 1930s on, slot machines eventually passed table games as the top casino money-maker in the 1980s. Despite 11 casinos operating in Atlantic City, there are probably fewer table games being offered in the city than in the 1920s. However, since 2003, one table game, poker, has been rising steadily. Atlantic City casinos added poker rooms in the 1990s, before the Hold’em explosion, leaving them in good position to take advantage of poker’s rise in popularity. Most of the city’s casinos have refurbished their poker rooms

or built new rooms in the last few years. The city now offers poker action in eight casino poker rooms and also offers tablegame versions of poker (such as Caribbean Stud) and video poker in all of its casinos.

Retro Fashions Inspire W By Whitney Ullman

IT H BOARDWALK EMPIRE I N F U L L S W I N G and the history of Atlantic City fresh on our minds, let’s take a look at the fashion trends from the 1920s and how they relate to modern day America. It seems as though some of the ’20s trends are making their way back in today’s fashion world, but with more of a modern twist. To confirm these suspicions, I asked a few fashion experts. Gina LaMorte, celebrity stylist and CEO of Boho magazine (, definitely agrees. She sees a lot of

fringe, feathers and Art-Deco styles represented in today’s fashions. When asked if she felt people dressed nicer back in the ’20s than they do today, LaMorte says the comparison isn’t really possible. “I don’t believe you can compare a decade like the ’20s to today,” she says. “Society was completely different. Clearly there was much more formality in terms of design and dressing as opposed to today where we are a completely liberal and informal society. Women’s roles were entirely different [back then].”

LaMorte says that trends come back because fashion in general is cyclical. Designers are inspired by the past and reinterpret their visions for the future, but there will always be a slight difference whether it’s a button, fabrication or silhouette. As for today’s fashion, although trends change and come back, according to LaMorte, our world has become more free and, therefore, more casual. There are no longer any fashion rules. Fashion, or as she says, “style,” is completely individual as opposed to decades past when there were clear-cut styles and trends, which categorized people into classes. LaMorte says that her favorite decade fashion-wise was the 1960s. “Fashion discovered its freedom during that time,” she says. “Formalities disappeared and denim was first introduced. Where would we all be without our favorite pair of jeans?” Another local fashionista, Yen Shakleford, graduated from The Art Institute of Philadelphia and attended London’s Intercontinental School of Design. She feels that not only are some fashion trends from the ’20s coming back, but also hair and make-up styles as well. Danni Eafrati, owner and head stylist at Art Is Salon in Brigantine, agrees. “People ask for styles from many different eras,” says Eafrati, adding that he’s seen modern versions of the ’20s look leaving his salon. “There are so many trends right now, so individuality is the key.” Like LaMorte, Shakleford agrees that we live in a very eclectic time where everyone has their own unique style and taste to represent their personality. Back in the ’20s, she says, everyone was very well dressed and even people who couldn’t afford expensive clothing looked nice. It was an era where people took the time to care about their dress and presentation. Nowadays, she says, it’s not uncommon to roll out of bed in your pajamas and go shopping. Shakleford says most people don’t realize that the economy and politics of a certain period can affect fashion. During the ’20s there were big changes, especially during the women suffrage movement, and women wanted to show their independence by moving towards more loose-fitting dresses, and clothing that was more comfortable for their bodies rather than what men wanted them to wear — such as the torturous corset. Plus, during that same period, the Chanel fashion empire starting to thrive, and a lot of patterns and designs were inspired by the discovery of King Tut’s tomb, so anything Egyptian was in style — especially Egyptian cotton. Natural materials were used to make clothes, as polyester and spandex didn’t exist until the modern era. Clothes were made to fit you, whereas today you have to fit yourself into the clothes! Shakleford advises those who may be trying to start their own trend: “Be true to yourself and wear what makes you comfortable. Don’t let other people mold your style. Let your personality speak for you and the rest will follow.” Fashions throughout the decades have changed so much, but the one constant is personal preference. So, what’s your fashion style? N

Where Nucky Lay His Head

Once a happening hotel, the Ritz Condominium has restored its vintage look, if not its wild ways. By Jim Waltzer


n o v e m b e r 1 1 , 2 0 1 0 / A C W e e k ly. c o m

h e n N u c k y J o h n s o n ALLEGEDLY ensconced Al Capone at the Ritz Carlton during the Mobsters’ Convention of May 1929, the Beaux Arts hostelry at Iowa Avenue and the Boardwalk was the toast of Atlantic City. Eight years old, it was still the newest of the beachfront hotels (the Claridge would claim that status the following year), and Nucky himself leased the entire ninth floor for the purposes of living, loving, and local hegemony. Seashore history is slippery — some accounts place Capone and his fellow delegates at the President, and Nucky’s digs on the Ritz’s eighth floor — but by any measure, the 1920s roared extra loud in Atlantic City. In later decades, that exuberance yielded to war, decline, and demolition before legalized gambling reincarnated the resort. All but a few of the grand Boardwalk hotels fell to the wrecking ball, the Ritz being one of the survivors. Barely. “It was in a deplorable state [by 1980],” says Herb Hartman, whose Boardwalk Realty in the refurbished Ritz Condominium sells and leases units at the site. “[Rehab] allowed us to see the potential in the building.” That potential has been realized with 322 residences and six commercial suites in the privately owned, present-day Ritz, which joined the condo ranks in 1982. During the past eight years, its vintage luster has been restored, and new appointments and facilities added. Nucky likely would have approved. The Ritz debuted in June 1921, a streamlined redbrick rectangle with 600 rooms and an approximate price tag of $6 million. (It may have been as high as $8 million.) The New York architectural firm of Warren and Wetmore, which shared in the design of iconic Grand Central Terminal (popular handle: Grand Central Station), brought the Parisian flair that was Beaux Arts (think symmetry, flat roofs, arched windows, sculptural detail) to their conception for the new Ritz-Carlton, a name that bespoke class, elegance, and, well, ritziness. W&W also had designed updated versions of the local Shelburne, St. Charles, and Ambassador hotels, the last situated right across Iowa Avenue from the Ritz. “[The architects] were ahead of their time,” says Hartman, referring to the oversize windows and multiple views that distinguished the hotel rooms. The interior was a meld of marble, expensive furnishings, and high spirits. The hotel’s Merry-Go-Round Bar offered reasonably priced drinks to draw a lively crowd packed onto a carousel under a canvas awning. A special elevator ferried beach-goers to the sea. One floor sported several rooms dedicated to pantry service. Indeed, the Ritz catered to both the well-heeled and strollers off the Boardwalk. With Nucky regularly entertaining political, showbiz and gangland celebri-

ties, the Ritz was party central for many years. New York’s natty Mayor Jimmy Walker favored the Ritz, as did perennial seashore songstress/comedienne Sophie Tucker. Metropolitan opera star Lawrence Tibbett serenaded Boardwalk audiences by belting arias from his beachfront suite. Card sharks sequestered themselves in designated rooms for big-money games. Two decades later, the stakes had changed. Starting in 1942, the Ritz served a three-year hitch for Uncle Sam, as did its fellow beachfront hotels — the Army Air Force had commandeered the town for training, as World War II raged in Europe. In the fall of 1945, AAF Redistribution Station No. 1 restored private ownership to the Ritz, but the postwar public marched to a different beat. The 1950s and ’60s brought budget-conscious motels to the Boardwalk, while expanding air travel ushered many vacationers to distant destinations. Atlantic City and its palaces had aged. In 1958, giant hotelier Sheraton purchased the Ritz-Carlton for just $4.25 million. Under new ownership a decade later, the hotel

converted its rooms to apartments. As the old structures vanished and casino-hotels took hold, the Ritz stood its ground and went condo, dropping the “Carlton” from its name per the parent company. Since 2002, its youth and swagger have been restored. “We’ve been putting it back to the way it was,” says Carol Hartman, president of the condominium association, co-founder of Boardwalk Realty, and Herb’s mom. “It’s an ongoing project.” That’s been going strong. Lobbies and staircases display a regal bearing once more. Burgundy-velvet draperies and period furniture have returned, and marble floors have been refinished. A $3.5-million swimming pool and health club, added in 2008, strikes a modern chord. Outside, $500,000 in CRDA money — plus fine workmanship and careful attention to old photographs — has transformed the building’s Boardwalk façade from a frumpy strip of mismatched awnings and bad colors to a uniform richness. Currently under consideration for a berth on state and national historic registers, the building seems a surefire candidate. What government official would have the temerity to vote thumbs-down, with the ghost of Nucky hovering in the salt air? With interest in the Ritz increasing on a national level due to the popularity of the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, which is based on Atlantic City in the 1920s and revolves around the fictional character Nucky Thompson (based on the real Nucky Johnson), the Hartmans have started to offer tours of the building where Nucky once lived, partied and held historic meetings. For a tour of the Ritz, contact Herb Hartman at 609-345-2062. n

The Restaurants of Today By Frank Gabriel


E ELING HU NG R Y? THEN YOU ARE IN LUCK. Our region — Atlantic City and the whole of southern New Jersey — presents a plethora of dining possibilities. Although that fact is a relatively new phenomenon, it has a solid foundation derived from the area’s topography, history and population. We are, without the slightest hint of hyperbole, like nowhere else in the country. Maybe the world. New Jersey is known as the Garden State with good reason and this is the epicenter of that garden. Whether it’s peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, tomatoes, peaches, apples, pears, plums, straw, black or blueberries, romaine, red and green leaf lettuces, arugula, dandelion, figs or potatoes of any variety, southern New Jersey’s bounty is rich in depth and quality. Those unique natural attributes form one-third of an equation which has fostered a dynamic restaurant environment locally. The second element, infrastructure and investment, might appear less obvious. So, wrap your minds around the fact that 10 or so years ago, none of the following even existed: Buddakan. The Continental. Chelsea Prime. Teplitzky’s. Carmine’s. Cuba Libre. The Melting Pot. Il Mulino. McCormick & Schmick’s. Mia. Old Homestead, Morton’s, The Palm and Ruth’s Chris steak houses. Ditto for Phillips Seafood, Red Square, Souzai, Wolfgang Puck’s American Grill, Fin. Fornelletto, Izakaya, Patsy’s, The Trinity, SeaBlue and Simon Prime. Throw in Gertrude’s, Manna, Sofia, Dune, Tomatoe’s (at least in their current locale/incarnation) Johnny’s, Domenico’s, Sage and Luke Palladino — outside of the resort town proper — too. All within only a few miles of Absecon Island. Get the picture?


We think you’d be hard pressed to find a market, which has seen a more dynamic, exponential amount of growth in such a short time frame. The third portion of this holy triumvirate of food is ethnic diversity and change. Southern New Jersey continues to serve as a microcosm of the American immigrant experience. Beginning with Dutch and English settlers in the 1600 and 1700s, continuing through waves of Germans, Scots, Irish, Jews and Italians, we’ve always been an initial portal for those seeking a better life in America. Our new Millennium variant, however, is a composite of former Soviet block residents — free to travel after decades of Communist rule — Latinos, Indians, Pakistanis, Thais, Vietnamese and Western Africans. These peoples have brought with them their own ancient culinary skill sets of technique, tradition, ingredient, culture and wisdom. A quick glance through the pages of this publication will reveal a bit about the globetrotting array of specialized ethnic restaurants near Atlantic City. If in search of vindaloo, India’s fiery, fearsome answer Makto e Glook reavery to fra diavalo, you won’t have t hard. The

same goes for mole, Mexico’s spicy/herbal/chocolate/ cinnamon masterpiece, that country’s most cherished contribution to the gastronomic world. Hearty steaming bowls of pho — a rice noodle-based blend considered to be Vietnam’s national soup — are just as easy to locate. What this writer finds most striking about our local restaurant scene is the unabated emergence of small, “mom and pop” eateries. Even in such a harsh economy, these continue to sprout up with surprising regularity. Especially true in the fastest-growing segment of our population, Latino, these are like pretty little flowers, reaching eagerly towards the sun from between cracks in the pavement. Think the American Dream is dead? Don’t tell that to husband and wife team the Baos, of Ocean City’s charming Chinese purveyor R.I. Cafe. Nor the Guzmans, of Colombian origin, who run downtown Pleasantville’s Los Mangos. Hardworking entrepreneurs like these abound in our region, ready to embrace any opportunities provided. Early this year, in our “Wish List” column, we begged a few favors from The gods of food. The first, more BBQ joints, was addressed immediately with the addition of Redding’s and Kelsey & Kim’s to Atlantic City. Another, the return of retro sweet Baked Alaska, was graciously provided by the kitchen of Chelsea Prime during an early spring visit. Late in summer, just when we thought the steak house concept could offer no real surprise, Harrah’s Resort’s D’Zio brought the lusty indulgence of Brazilian-style dining. (Plus one of the world’s greatest salad bars.) In keeping with the general theme of this special issue, we close with the eloquent words of singer/songwriter Carly Simon: “Stay right here, ‘cause these are the good old days.” N

The Movie Palaces

In its heyday, Atlantic City had numerous movie theaters. Today there is only the IMAX.




By Lori Hoffman


HIS SPECIAL â&#x20AC;&#x153;THEN AND NOWâ&#x20AC;? edition of Atlantic City Weekly has made me think a lot about my childhood and how the region has adapted and changed over the decades. For the generation of Absecon Island dwellers who were born from about 1980 on, the notion that there were movie theaters on the island must seem quaint. When I was a youngster growing up in Ventnor in the 1960s, the great movie palaces were dying out, but there were still a few that fed my fascination for movies. My family wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t big on moviegoing, but I remember us getting dressed in our Sunday best to go see The Sound of Music at the Virginia Theater in 1965. The Virginia was one of the wonderful roadshow palaces that showed films in 70mm format. The Virginia is also where I became a big fan of Bob Fosseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choreography, when I saw the 70mm version of his musical Sweet Charity, starring Shirley MacLaine, in 1968. For some big films, mostly musicals, you were given as glossy program book with pictures and information on the film. Eleven years later, while a film critic for the Philadelphia Journal, I got a chance to meet Bob Fosse and he graciously signed my Sweet Charity program book. Steel Pier, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Showplace of the Nation,â&#x20AC;? began showing motion pictures in the early 1900s. My family went to the Steel Pier as often as possible in the summer. In 1965 my brothers and I sat through the King Family Singers twice in the Music Hall Theater in order to get good seats to see the Beatles movie Help, which followed the live show. Saturday mornings, after a bike ride on the Boardwalk to see the sea lions at Captain Starnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, we would often spend the afternoon at the kids matinee at the Margate Theater. We walked to the theater so we could play â&#x20AC;&#x153;armyâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;cowboys and Indiansâ&#x20AC;? along the winding streets of Marven Gardens, the famously misspelled locale in Monopoly (and in the 1972 film The King of Marvin Gardens). When I was old enough to be trusted to take a bus into Atlantic City, I would often spend afternoons at the theaters on Atlantic Avenue in Atlantic City, the Hollywood, the Embassy and the Center. I believe it was at the Hollywood where I saw Jason and the Argonauts (1963) at least six times. The film, though cheesy, remains one of my favorite examples of Ray Harryhausenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stop action animation. I also remember being fascinated by the poster for True Grit (1969), featuring Kim Darby as pre-teen heroine Mattie Ross. I loved the film (still do) and thought I looked like Darby, who became one of my favor actors of my early movie buff career. Unfortunately, her movie career did not last beyond the 1970s. By the late 1980s, most of the theaters were gone. Atlantic City had no movie theaters left and only the Margate and the Ventnor held on into the early 1990s. Join us on Facebook:

The Virginia Theater (above); The Margate (left) and below, the Warner. The Ventnor is still there on Ventnor avenue near Nashville avenue, but the Margate was torn down to make way for condominiums. What was left of the closed movie theaters on the Atlantic City Boardwalk were torn down for casino construction. Today the only theater on the island is the IMAX at the Tropicana. Like so much else during the era of the 1960s-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s, moviegoing was relegated to the suburbs. N


According to the wonderful picture book, South Jersey Movie Houses by Allen F. Hauss, Atlantic City was a prime location to release blockbuster summer movies. At one time Atlantic City had over 30 movie theaters. The huge Warner Theater (2,626 orchestra seats, 1,251 balcony seats, 310 loge seats and a Wurlitzer pipe organ) had once been a showroom for live theater before its conversion to movies. Only the original façade remains, as part of Ballyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boardwalk entrance. The Virginia was another major venue, and the Steel Pier showed motion pictures as part of its total entertainment package. The Globe Theater, a former vaudeville house, was the first in the city to install Vitaphone sound technology for the first Warner Brothers sound film, Don Juan (1926). It became a burlesque house in 1928. The 600-seat Alan Theatre, at Kentucky and Arctic avenues, played movies by black directors for black audiences. Other movie theaters in town included the Charles, the Hollywood, the Center, the Capitol (later the home for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Miss 56,â&#x20AC;? stripper Busty Russell), the Beach (which showed X-rated movies from the 1970s to 1983 when it closed), the Astor, Embassy, Bijou and the Colonial. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;LH

Hackneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Captain Starnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s & the Restaurants That Were These two giant seafood restaurants in the Inlet, along with other classic eateries, dominated the restaurant scene for decades in Atlantic City. By Lori Hoffman


N THE EARLY 1960S MY brothers and I had a Saturday morning summer ritual. We would hop on our bicycles and ride the six-mile length of the Ventnor and Atlantic City Boardwalks. When we reached Captain Starnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seafood Restaurant we would buy the seal chum and feed the seals and sea lions in the pen by the restaurant. Captain Starnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Hackneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seafood Restaurant, both located off the Boardwalk in the Inlet section of town, were two of the most famous restaurants on the entire East Coast. They were part of a glorious era in Atlantic City â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the 1940s to the 1960s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; when the town was still a bustling tourist mecca in the summertime. The decline of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Queen of Resortsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Playgroundâ&#x20AC;? was just around the corner, but before that decline Atlantic City, the whole of Absecon Island and the surrounding region was well known for great restaurants. Hackneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, opened by Harry Hackney in 1912, bragged in its advertising that it was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;as famous as the Boardwalk.â&#x20AC;? This monster-sized facility could seat 3,200 patrons for dinner, and once claimed that it was the largest seafood restaurant in the world. It was famous for its lobster dinners and its lobster tank where you could literally pick up your dinner. Amazingly enough, there were enough customers to keep both Hackneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Captain Starnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopping despite the fact that they were just down the Boardwalk from each other. Captain Starnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant, had seating for 750, and

Old Hackneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s postcard was opened by Clarence Starn in 1940. As noted in a 2005 article by columnist and author Jim Waltzer in Atlantic City Weekly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Capt. Starnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant and Boating Center was in its prime, the attraction was indeed more than just cuisine. ... A fleet of sailboats and motorboats provided sightseeing excursions round the island. A seaplane took the courageous on thrill rides, ending its run with a nervewracking dive into the ocean. Starnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s may have offered a four-star stuffed flounder and broiled Alaskan crab, but it was the atmosphere that kept the place packed.â&#x20AC;? Also in the city were Dockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oyster House on Atlantic Avenue and the Knife And Fork Inn, the odd-shaped restaurant with the Flemish design, located on Albany and Pacific avenues. These two elegant, longtime culinary icons have survived to this day. So has Tonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Baltimore Grill, at Iowa and Atlantic avenues, still a localâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite for its pizza and spaghetti. Other Italian favorites that are still around are Angeloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fairmount Tavern (opened

in 1935), at 2300 Fairmount Ave., and Angeloniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s II Restaurant at 2400 Arctic Ave. Both are local favorites in the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ducktown neighborhood. If you were in the mood for a great Jewish deli experience you had two excellent choices, Kornblauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at Virginia and Pacific avenues in Atlantic City, and Louâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant on Ventnor Avenue (at Nashville) in Ventnor. Kornblauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, operated by Morris and Alex Kornblau, was known for its tasty corned-beef and hot pastrami sandwiches. Lou and Helen Adelman opened Louâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant in February 1946. It featured classic deli sandwiches, salads and soups. It was dress-up time and a special occasion when we went to Zabererâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the Black Horse Pike in Egg Harbor Township. Home of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Zaber-izedâ&#x20AC;? cocktail (a mug of root beer in my case), it was opened by Charlie Zaberer in the 1940s and, in its heyday, this huge facility and popular banquet spot could seat 1,200. We would also go for a longer trip on rare occasions to Ed Zabererâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (Charlieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother) in Wildwood. (When you take the escalator up to the House of Blues Music Hall at the Showboat you can see an old-style advertisement for Zabererâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.) When visiting Atlantic City nostalgia sites online, it becomes clear that the three Kentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurants were popular tourist stops for summer visitors. Kentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant & Baking Co. was founded in 1903 by Morris Walton at 1208 Atlantic Ave. The second location was on Pacific and Illinois avenues, and the third at Atlantic and

Starnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arkansas avenues. Here is one ode to Kentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pastries found on the site â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s RestaurantBakery Uptown made delicious twice-iced chocolate cakes. The vanilla layers were covered with two chocolate icings, the first frosting was light chocolate and over this was a shiny dark chocolate icing. The cakes sat in the window on raised glass cake stands fancied with white paper doilies.â&#x20AC;? On the Boardwalk at Tennessee Avenue, later moving to South Carolina Avenue, was Childs, part of a chain of restaurants started by Samuel and Williams Childs in 1889. Designed to provide â&#x20AC;&#x153;economical meals for the working class,â&#x20AC;? the chain is credited as the first to use a tray line selfservice cafeteria format. The restaurant in Atlantic City could seat 1,000. This article barely scratches the surface of the great Atlantic City dining experience back in the old days.

Atlantic City has never been lacking for iconic photos, from its famous skyline to the beach and Boardwalk. But the more things change, the more things stay the same. Sunbathers still ply the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sand, strollers still walk the boards and couples still take romantic rides in rolling chairs. The backgrounds may change, the grand hotels may be knocked down and rebuilt, but the iconic Atlantic City scene has been remarkably consistent. (See photo gallery at

HEADLINERS In this special photo section, AC Weekly art director Kevin McCarty meshes the past and present together to achieve an allencompassing view of Atlantic City through the years. Some images have gone, some have remained and some have adapted with the changing times. But one thing never changes. In Atlantic City, there is always something new to see and old to remember.

Atlantic City has had its ups and downs over the decades, but the entertainment options have never been on that rollercoaster ride. Atlantic City provided top-shelf entertainment from the very beginning of its life as a resort. From the turn of the century to the 1920s — currently in the Boardwalk Empire spotlight — and from the glory years of the Steel Pier, the 500 Club and Club Harlem, to today’s casino showrooms and Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City has always provided a showcase for the very best entertainers in the world.
