    The poor people who live in Atlantic City could benefit from state investments, too, but I'm sure nobody expects any such thing.

    They need expensive stuff like more and better 'preschool' education. And subsidized jobs (like extra street-sweeping and sanitation crews, like those working the Times Square District in NYC).

    But it would be easy, especially for the Camden-by-the-sea blocks too close to the beachfront casinos, to add lots of cheap stuff like tree plantings along the bare blocks, improved and festive lighting, better street furniture (benches, lighted and covered bus shelters, bike racks, signage, etc), open air markets,  live music outdoors, parades, etc. If the area wasn't so dreary looking, locals and visitors alike would benefit.
