More than 33 million people visit "America's Favorite Playground" each year to take advantage of the many attractions Atlantic City has to offer. But ever since the terrorist attacks in nearby New York City on Sept. 11, the city has been in a bit of an upheaval.
That's because the entertainment industry has taken a hit, with many people opting to stay closer to home. In addition, New York is working on legislation that would allow gambling in six sites around the state as a way to pay for the cleanup of the devastation that occurred on Sept. 11. This has casinos in Atlantic City worried that customers will no longer travel to New Jersey if they can gamble in their own backyards.
