We need to merge our collective brainpower, step up and come up with ideas that could save Atlantic City. We need to merge our collective brainpower, step up and come up with ideas that could save Atlantic City. To the editor:

My wife Roseann and I are fortunate to live in Four Seasons, a senior community adorned with manicured lawns, neatly trimmed hedges, aesthetically pleasing bushes, ornate flower beds framing winding rows of attractive homes. 

Ponds alive with floating fountains, tree-lined pathways designed to accommodate pedestrians and bikers add to the charming ambience. And let’s not forget a clubhouse, more like a resort, with indoor and outdoor pools, bocce, tennis, shuffleboard and pickle ball courts offering so many activities a resident could fill his or her day with nothing but fun and games.
