Presentation: David G. Schwartz

David G. Schwartz (Ombuds) recently gave a talk to the Sewickley Valley Historical Society entitled "Bound for the Boardwalk: Atlantic City: A Look Back." The talk presented the history of the seaside resort from its first settlement by Lennai Lenape Indians, through its 1854 incorporation and connection to Philadelphia by railroad, its glory days, decline, and rebirth as the casino capital of the East. Schwartz, who is an Atlantic City native, enjoyed a lively Q&A with members of the society, who shared their own memories of visiting the shore town going back to the 1950s.
