Does Atlantic City's Future Rest on Prince Harry?

Posted: Apr. 18th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

It sure seems like there's something out there against Atlantic City. So much so, actually, that the city is starting to lay its hope on the one and only Prince Harry. The young royal military veteran has a propensity to leave a wake of tourism in his path.

The New Jersey seaside resort town of Atlantic City seems woefully unable to catch a break these days—battered by Hurricane Sandy, beset by a general lack of interest among young partygoers, and losing its flagship Miss America pageant in 2006. A.C.’s most ambitious new hotel-casino, Revel, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this week, an announcement coming just over a year after the shuttering of the three-year-old “ACES” party train service that tried to court young gamblers from New York City.

But now, perhaps, there is reason for A.C. to rejoice—Britain’s most legendary partier since Austin Powers, His Royal Highness Prince Harry of Wales, is going to be in the area.
