Editorial Reviews

Review

Atlantic City has always been a place where unique entertainment attractions were showcased and sometimes copied throughout the world. Dr. Schwartz accurately tells the history of a city that, at times, has been truly GREAT, and has created within each citizen - both past and present - the desire to rebuild toward a Shangri-La, an earthly paradise. With the knowledge of past history, we all can contribute to another rebirth of America's Playground. Thank you, Dr. Schwartz, for taking this first step.

--Paul Steelman, AIA, NCARB, CEO, Steelman Partners

Although he grew up in the casino era, David G. Schwartz's passion for and knowledge of Atlantic City goes way back in history. If Boardwalk Empire made you believe there was more to Atlantic City than simply casinos, Schwartz's new book will surely give you a well-rounded understanding of the rich history and characters that have shaped the Boardwalk town.
-- Roger Gros, Publisher, Global Gaming Business

From the Author

This was a book I had to write. I was born in and grew up in Atlantic City, and I write about history, so a book of Atlantic City history is a natural for me. The book started as a series of monthly columns in Casino Connection magazine, a publication geared towards casino employees. Basically, the idea was, if I had a few minutes to tell someone something interesting about Atlantic City history, what would it be?
The result is one hundred stories of people, places, events, and organizations spanning all of Atlantic City's history. 
I hope you learn as much about the city while reading this book as I did in writing it, and I hope that you enjoy it.
