A city in South Jersey with unique culture and diversity, grade A tattoo shops, the best hoagies in the world, and streets lined with Cash for Gold signs. People from New York and Pennsylvania often travel there to throw their money away in the numerous casinos along the boardwalk and turn their noses up at the locals. Most of these visitors actually hate the city and think it's dangerous. Chances are, they haven't been to Camden.
Atlantic City is the Hollywood of freaks.
