News from Around the South Jersey Shore

NEWS! And lots of it.

If you're in New York, this could be your subway train:

On Saturday, Boardwalk Empire/1920s themed trains hit the tracks in New York City as a promotion for the start of the new season. Cool, right?

Bizarre note from over the weekend: Game On and Trinity at the Pier Shops at Caesars closed. Given that the complex is going to be auctioned, I wasn't surprised that some restaurants might close. But I'd at least expect them to tell their employees on Sunday they were about to lose their jobs on Monday.

And stepping into this mess is John Palmieri, the new head of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority. Palmieri held a similar post in Boston.

Hey, how we doing on Revel? They have a website up and running, with a countdown.

I wish I had met this woman.

This is just a press release, but it has good numbers in it: more people traveled to Atlantic City this Labor Day weekend early than Labor Day weekend last year, though overall toll trips were slightly down.

Alright, enough of Atlantic City. Cape May's going to start offering free parking for the handicapped.

I don't think this has anything to do with our Wildwood, but worth a link. Weird.

Flyers GM was in a bike accident in Avalon. Be careful, folks.

Anybody want to live in Sea Isle this winter? Seems a reasonable price. If anyone knows of something similar in Asbury Park, let me know. Might be doing a project up there this winter.

This one caught my eye but got pushed aside because of Irene: Wildwood is trying to shut down "rowdy" houses. I've long said that Wildwood will not completely revitalize its image until homes stop renting to high school kids for senior weeks and prom weeks. This is a step in the right direction.
