A.C. eyes shorter Boardwalk after storms

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - December 4, 2009

The city plans to raze about two blocks of the wooden walkway at the northern end of the city. It's been damaged by years of storms and bad weather, cutting it off from the rest of the Boardwalk.

The city is eyeing future tax receipts from the upcoming Revel casino to help pay for improvements in the area, including the Boardwalk work.

Officials say that in addition to being a safety hazard, the damaged Boardwalk would give new visitors a worse impression of Atlantic City once Revel opens nearby in 2011.

There's no firm timetable for the Boardwalk demolition yet.
