Made it to Jersey, Missed NY

Atlantic City, NJ

Last week was the anticipated NY Photo Festival which we shamefully missed for a second time, but were surprised to learn from other photo blogs that we may not have missed much? We promise ourselves to make it out next year when we should be NYC residents once more. Made it back last week for a few days, but ended up in Atlantic City instead of NYC for some family fun at the casinos and boardwalk. We haven't been to Atlantic City in years, maybe even more than a decade. Though much has changed, the overall seediness lingered. The fancy Borgata can't hide the reality of its inhabitants nor the surrounding neighborhoods you drive through just to get there. It was tons of fun and felt as if we were transported to another place and time, almost like a virtual reality tour through Zoe Strauss' America.
