Atlantic City is a city in Atlantic County, New Jersey, USA. Famous for its boardwalk, casino gambling, and as the inspiration for the board game Monopoly, it is a resort community located on Absecon Island on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.
On May 1, 1854 Atlantic City was incorporated by an act of the New Jersey Legislature. The new city contained portions of Egg Harbor Township and Galloway Township.
In 1870, the first boardwalk was built along a portion of the beach to help hotel owners keep sand out of their lobbies. The idea caught on, and the boardwalk was expanded and modified several times in the following years. The historic length of the boardwalk, before the 1944 hurricane, was about 7 miles (11.2 kilometers) and it extended from Atlantic City to Longport, through Ventnor and Margate. Today, it is 4.12 miles (6.63 kilometers) long and 60 feet (18 meters) wide, reinforced with steel and concrete. The combined length of the Atlantic City and Ventnor boardwalks--the boardwalk now ends at the Ventor/Margate border--is approximately 5.75 miles (9.25 kilometers), currently the world's longest boardwalk.
Length 5 1/8 inches. Fully marked sterling. No mono or removal. Bowl has an engraved lighthouse.
