Atlantic City – Turning the Tide

Turning the Tide, Atlantic City Waterfront Access and Revitalization Plan

Executive Summary


There are 34 places in New Jersey with populations greater than Atlantic City’s. But ask someone from anywhere in the United States to name a place in New Jersey, and chances are, Atlantic City will top the list. No other city of its size is as well known by people from around the country and around the world, and over the past few decades, probably no other city of its size has been the subject of so many studies, plans, and big ideas. This plan, however, is the first to focus exclusively on the City’s waterfront.
