Buildings missing from AyCee advertisement

Don't know who was responsible, but somebody slipped up big time with the full-page Atlantic City ad that appears in this month's Philadelphia magazine.

This photo, which appears in an ad in the current edition of Philadelphia, appears to tell only part of the story.

Don’t know why this would have happened, but there's something very wrong with the full-page Atlantic City ad that appears in this month’s Philadelphia magazine.

The eye-catching advertisement displays a beautiful, sun-dappled panorama of the town. It’s a spectacular shot, but there's one not-so-slight problem: It is missing several signature buildings, including Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa and its sister property, The Water Club, the Waterfront Tower at Harrah’s Resort, and, most egregious of all, Revel, which is the lynchpin of the town’s future (an under-construction Chairman’s Tower at Trump Taj Mahal appears to be poking its head above the original Taj tower). Oddly, the cupola-topped Havana Tower at Tropicana Atlantic City, which opened in 2004, can be seen behind the Ocean Club condos (second building from left).

Weird, no?

Since then, Chuck has covered the town and its gaming industry for several area newspapers -- which is why, in some circles, he’s known as “Boardwalk Charlie.”
