For my money, the moments that best captured the Dave Matthews Band Caravan at happened on the Albany Avenue drawbridge leading to and from the Bader Field site just over the intracoastal waterway.
For the nightly exodus, Atlantic City Police officers shut down the roadway from the bridge to the Monument to cars for about 20 minutes to clear the tens of thousands of people leaving Bader Field. It turned into a joyous march over the bridge and down toward the Boardwalk. All the cops I talked to thought it was the coolest thing to watch. It really was.
The crowd stretched all the way to the monument at Albany and Ventnor Avenues, like Times Square at midnight, the start of some walk-a-thon, or, perhaps more precisely, a cargo shorts and flip flopped version of the old Easter photos of Atlantic City, when people filled the Boardwalk in their finest.
