Financial analysts, local politicians, and regular visitors see the Borgata Hotel, Casino, and Spa as the city's future — a future as bright as the building itself. Civic leaders eagerly await an anticipated $10 million yearly tax windfall, and store owners all over the area are already counting on the 2,600 new employees to fill their shops and boost their revenues. Some believe the Borgata represents, finally, the start of the city's latest comeback. However, it is argued that Atlantic City remains pretty much as it is — a stark, vacant, poor city with a beach, the Boardwalk, and, now that the Borgata has opened, twelve separate, inward-looking casino villages that leave only crumbs on the Monopoly streets around them.
