A city in the U.S. state of New Jersey, Atlantic City legalized gambling in the 1970s making it the only other area of the country other than Las Vegas to have legalized gambing. Altough Atlantic City was generally considered as part of the Philadelphia family's domain, the Corleone family and Stracci family were also allowed to operate in the city.
In 1979, Michael Corleone called a meeting with the Commission in the penthouse of the Palazzo Azzurro in Atlantic City, where he returned all of their shares in his various casinos. Shortly after, most of the Commmission was wiped out by Joey Zasa's hitmen in a daring helicopter raid, leaving only Michael, Don Altobello, and a few other Dons and associates alive.
