Classy New Train from NYC to Atlantic City

There was a time when a casino bus would pull up in front of the By George Restaurant on Henry Street in Brooklyn Heights and pick up gamblers (mostly senior citizens) for a day at Atlantic City. The bus ride may not have been classy, but it was convivial and rolls of quarters would be distributed. (Haven't seen the casino buses on Henry Street for some time now, though Greyhound offers a ride to Atlantic City from Brooklyn.)

Now an alternative to the Atlantic City casino bus is ready to roll. And, unlike the buses, the train will be classy: The first direct train service from New York to Atlantic City will feature leather seats, food and drink and other amenities. Crain's New York
