The streets of Monopoly in real life

Plugged In

You’ve likely spent hours staring at iconic Monopoly properties like Baltic Ave., Marvin Gardens, and Boardwalk, but how much do you know about their real-life counterparts?

Scouting NY took a trip to Atlantic City, New Jersey (the original location of the now-famous properties, in a roundabout way) to see what Monopoly’s colorful streets look like today.

Some of those streets have held up better than others. Boardwalk? It’s still a boardwalk. St. Charles Place? It’s pretty much vanished. Even weirder is trying to square up reality with the bizarre fantasy world of Atlantic City real-estate that 75 years of Monopoly has crammed into our heads.

Baltic, it turns out, isn’t such a slum after all. T-Mobile?

Marvin Gardens, meanwhile, is the prettiest spot on the board. Scouting NY calls it "a dead ringer for the town in The Truman Show," though they also point out it's actually misspelled (technically, it's Marven Gardens).

Most Monopoly players skip past those light blue properties in search of fancier streets, but it turns out that Vermont Ave. holds a real treasure. The Absecon Light lighthouse is the tallest in the state.

The second most sought-after spot on the board, Park Place (originally named after a park, naturally) is now adjacent to a Bally's casino.
