According to Bart Blatstein, founder, owner, and CEO of Tower Investments, Inc., Atlantic City "has the infrastructure for a city of 250,000 people, even though it has 39,000 people currently. We have all the infrastructure needed. We have a street grid, a convention center, an airport, natural gas, fiberoptic, power – we have everything. So, now it's just plug and play."
