Relax and enjoy Atlantic City's Entertainment, including Fireworks

Atlantic City is known worldwide for its iconic Boardwalk, casinos, and reputation. Every time someone plays the traditional U.S. version of Monopoly, they become better acquainted with the streets of "A.C.," generally considered prime real estate in New Jersey. Incorporated as a city in 1854, its first hotel was built a year earlier, ready for train service arrival. As early as 1874, nearly half a million people were visiting the city and enjoying its amenities.

Many attribute the success of Atlantic City to Dr. Jonathan Pitney, also known as "The Father of Atlantic City." Pitney's vision was to develop the area as a health destination to which railroad access was essential. As a result, the railroad was built with Samuel Richards' help, and the first Atlantic City boardwalk was built in 1870. Over time, the Boardwalk became longer and wider-reaching, about seven miles before it was destroyed by a hurricane in 1944. Water not fire damaged the Boardwalk.

The 20th century marked a period of growth for Atlantic City, where large hotels and homes were built. It is common knowledge that during the Prohibition, liquor and gambling continued to rise in A.C. while allowing racketeering and contraband to flourish. During this time, Nucky Johnson amassed power, mainly due to the kickbacks he received from the illicit activities in the city and the construction industry.

Even today, Atlantic City is known for its vibrant nightlife, but it also has suffered ups and downs. After World War II, crime and corruption became the norm, and the city's economy declined significantly. Many of the original grand structures were demolished and absorbed by hotel chains. In the 1970s, the legalization of gambling gave way to the Boardwalk's resurgence, even though poverty still prevailed, providing a stark contrast to the tourists flocking into the city.

Visitors and residents of New Jersey can visit Atlantic City year-round for a strong lineup of entertainment. Concerts and performances anchor your time in A.C. while restaurants and casinos provide hours of unparalleled experiences. Families are also welcome and can select activities on the Boardwalk and beyond. Some options for families include-

  • Atlantic City Aquarium
  • African American Heritage Museum of Southern NJ
  • Atlantic City Cruises
  • Beach and Ocean Activities

Whether you have a few hours or a full weekend, Atlantic City is like no other place in the world. Make a plan to visit as soon as you can.

Mold removal companies like SERVPRO in Hamilton Township provide moisture removal and drying cleanup, and mold treatment services.

  • Indoor dirt

Mold infestations can grow into colonies in 24 to 48 hours in warm moist environments typically available in your home or business, especially after a water leak.

SERVPRO provides fast response for water damage in Hamilton Township

Water can enter a home or a commercial building in several ways, causing damage to the contents and the structure if not removed quickly. The most common sources of water are:



Broken or cracked water pipes

Appliances malfunctioning

Broken windows, doors, and even the roof caused by storms

Floods



Whenever water enters your Hamilton Township home, significant water damage can occur if the water and moisture are not immediately removed. The amount of damage only increases the longer water or even high humidity is left in place. Various wood products react differently to water as they absorb moisture and swell. For example:



Hardwood floors swelling may cause cupping or crowning

Wood products such as particleboard and plywood swell and lose structural integrity

Laminated flooring may swell quickly

The finish on furniture constructed from particleboard may prevent water from penetrating



Your SERVPRO team can respond quickly and focus on items most sensitive to water damage.

Call SERVPRO when you have fire damage in Atlantic City.

While Atlantic City has a storied history, with economic turmoil, significant weather events, and long sandy beaches, the city has maintained a reputation of being known as the world's playground. Developers have viewed the islands and marshlands as prime real estate for a resort town. The first hotel was constructed in 1853; train service began in 1854, connecting Philadelphia, bringing over 500,000 passengers a year to the seaside resort town.

Atlantic City Boardwalk

Atlantic City is known as a vacation destination with many hotels and businesses supporting tourism. The town's first boardwalk was built in 1870 and continues to this day. The boardwalk has gone through many alterations as it grew with the city and weathered many storms, hotel fires, and business evolution. The Atlantic City boardwalk runs approximately seven miles from Atlantic City to Longport as it passes Ventnor and Margate.

The boardwalk is possibly the largest attraction in Atlantic City, next to the sandy beaches and hotels. Atlantic City built several piers with entertainment, rides, and food outlets. On the boardwalk's landside are all of the small businesses, restaurants, hotels, and casinos. Tourists can rent bicycles early in the morning to experience the boardwalk's entire length or visit restaurants in a neighboring city. Thousands of people stroll the boardwalk all day long, taking in the sights and sounds, visiting the casinos and the beach.

Atlantic City Casinos

New Jersey residents approved legalized gambling in 1974, ushering in expansion and an era of construction and a renewal for Atlantic City. The first casino opened in 1978 and grew to over 12 casinos employing 33,000 people by 2011. Since 2012, Atlantic City casinos have seen a decline in revenue due to an economic downturn in the US and legalized gambling in adjacent and nearby states. There have been several casinos that have declared bankruptcy, restructured, and downsized. At the current time, nine casinos are operating in the area.

Attractions and Activities in Atlantic City

Aside from the beach, the boardwalk, and the casinos, there are many other things to do in the area. There are:



Several museums,

Shopping at Tangier Outlets,

Concerts and shows,

Boat tours,

Various parks and

Many activities on the water such as parasailing, surfing, fishing, and much more.

Atlantic City remains a destination for many tourists.



Can Odors from Fires Be Treated?

Even small fires that are contained quickly and extinguished can produce a large amount of smoke and residue that causes odors. Every fire is different; however, unless you remove the odor's cause, clean and seal surfaces, residents may persistently notice a distinct smell in their homes or businesses.

We train our SERVPRO team to identify sources of odors both inside and outside a structure. They follow a time-proven process to remove persistent odors.



Removal of all sources of odor

Clean and sanitize all surfaces

Track the flow of smoke residue throughout the structure for deodorization

Apply odor removal products to neutralize unpleasant odors thoroughly

SERVPRO Technicians Can Help Hamilton Township Residents Recover Damaged Items and Restore their Home.

Along the southern border of New Jersey lies Hamilton Township. The collection of villages has a complicated relationship with its neighboring areas. It is a part of New York State's metropolitan area but, by bordering Philadelphia, has a market area that belongs to Philadelphia's federal market area. The township has a burgeoning population of 88,464 residents who take advantage of its proximity to both New York and Philadelphia for commuting purposes. Hamilton encompasses one of the largest townships in New Jersey but is split into several smaller commercial districts, including Hamilton Square, Groveville, and Yardville. The plurality of retail centers allows residents to find unique cuisines and destinations within the broader township and ensures many districts find resorts, cheap hotels, and nightlife.

There are four Seasons Here!

The humid continental climate, unfortunately, leads to much rain throughout the year. However, the high precipitation levels are somewhat offset by the long hot summers tourists and residents enjoy.

Hamilton is perhaps best known for the nearby ivy-league university, Princeton. Situated just ten miles north of Hamilton, students from some of the township's Blue Ribbon schools make the journey alongside academically gifted students from all over the United States. Princeton has a world-renowned reputation and is one of the oldest universities in the US. Each year 10,000 undergraduates stay on the campus and work toward academic excellence. The importance of this ivy league school comes in no small part to its Nobel prize-winning alumni. Altogether Princeton has links to over 40 Nobel laureates. It has also been a school for US presidents, with James Madison and Woodrow Wilson attending in their younger years. Ranked as one of the top ten universities globally, Princeton has a close connection to Hamilton Township with some iconic architecture, designed by luminaries like Frank Gehry.

  • Hamilton Township offers a heady mix of contemporary art and culture. The Grounds For Sculpture (GFS) along Sculptors Way is a non-profit organization that provides 42 acres of ground breaking pieces and an arboretum. Seward Johnson, a seminal twentieth-century artist, founded the park in 1992, which opens to hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts each year.
  • The Sayen Botanical Gardens just off Hamilton Square boasts 30 acres of kept flora and fauna and provides a unique experience for history aficionados. The annual Azalea festival hosted at the garden offers guests an ephemeral visual experience of 250,000 flowering bulbs, witnessed by wandering along with the landscaped gardens, fountains, and bridges.
  • The Kuser Mansion is an eye-opening experience for those interested in late nineteenth-century architecture. Guided tours, movie nights, and educational programs occur throughout the year to continue Hamilton's rich history and tradition. The 22-acre space plays host to the annual winter wonderland fair, which features family fun alongside lighting the Christmas tree and fireworks.

Food, Drink, and Entertainment in Hamilton Township, NJ.

Some excellent restaurants dotted around Hamilton Township provide culinary treats to rival anything found in nearby Philadelphia or New York. Alongside the assortment of fine-dining venues, there is also a wealth of unique entertainment options that celebrate the personality of this New Jersey Township.

  • Two restaurants that stand out are the Malaga Restaurant on Lalor Street and Rat's Restaurant on Fairground Road. The first features a delicious blend of Spanish seafood tapas served as a lunchtime buffet or for sit-down meals in the evening. Malaga is ideally located nearby to the Grounds for Sculpture. Rat's Restaurant is a fine-dining experience serving a classic French menu.
  • For entertainment, Hamilton offers a range of high-octane to slightly oddball activities for visitors and residents. Bury the Hatchet is a venue that celebrates the Canadian tradition of ax throwing. The sport is very similar to darts except with axes, while the friendly staff is more than happy to help teach and train new players. Classes for throwing run in the mornings, and guests can then enter an ax-throwing tournament after training.
  • Legendary Exotics allows guests to drive a range of exotic super cars, including Lamborghinis and Ferraris. The one-time tours are ideal for birthday presents or groups and allow guests to experience life behind the wheel of some of the most exclusive automobiles in the world. Typical tours run from the in-house track and pre-plotted routes.

SERVPRO Can Help Hamilton Township Residents to Overcome Water Intrusion Using Industrial Extraction Equipment

Water intrusion can cause havoc in a home environment. The presence of moisture cause materials to warp and disintegrate. There is also a microbial issue that can deteriorate quickly, creating an unsanitary environment. The most effective means of mitigating against water loss damages is to extract excess moisture and dry the ground. Incomplete drying can be the number one cause of secondary damage like mold growth. SERVPRO technicians can assess the moisture level in your home using a range of psychrometric equipment. Understanding how water migrates from the entry point throughout the home is essential to evaluate restoration scope thoroughly. Water migration can lead to moisture becoming trapped inside cavities of a building's assembly. These issues can affect your home's structural integrity, become unsanitary, or lead to mold growth and organic matter rotting. Our technicians work hard to ensure that your home undergoes comprehensive drying to limit losses.

  • We can utilize a range of portable and truck-mounted extraction equipment to transport excess water out of your home quickly. Where there is significant standing water, our technicians can deploy powerful electric submersible pumps to shift moisture.
  • Our measuring equipment includes sensors, probes, and thermal imaging cameras. By detecting heat transference patterns, we can accurately predict water migration into cavities without having to remove parts of the building assembly.
  • Cleaning services are included within the restoration and can help to reduce the overall expense of your claim. Chemical agents are useful in controlling potential secondary damage and in returning your home to its preloss condition.

Returning property to “Like it never even happened,” condition requires patience and understanding. Contact SERVPRO of Atlantic City / Hamilton / Hammonton at (609) 293-3193 now.
