Atlantic City on its way to becoming 'Vegas East'

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. _ Avi Toledo walked past the gambling hall at Tropicana Hotel & Casino recently and headed straight for the new retail stores.

Instead of testing his luck on the slot machines or table games, Toledo, 48, is wagering on Atlantic City; he spent his entire visit trying to find a location on the Boardwalk for his upscale New York-based women's couture shop.

"I like what they did in the city with all the stores," said Toledo, as he peered inside a Brooks Brothers men's store inside the Quarter, a new $285 million, Havana-themed nongambling expansion at the Tropicana.
