ATLANTIC CITY — Over the last few months, the city has seen its optimism grow as a wave of good news has hit the city.

Talk of the city’s struggling finances and casino closings has been replaced by discussions over the opening of Stockton University’s Gateway Project and Hard Rock’s new casino at the former site of the closed Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in 2018.

The two projects have been viewed, by some, as a sign that the city’s next boom era is on the horizon. While the projects are a sign the city is moving in the right direction, some experts think expectations should be dialed back.
