From Baltic Avenue to Boardwalk, anyone who has played Monopoly remembers the streets that make up the iconic board game. But these locations aren't just fictional: the names are pulled from the real streets of Atlantic City. Scouting NY went on a field trip to see just what these streets look like in real life, and came back with a series of photos that let you look at these locations as more than just simple strips of color. (The photos also makes it harder to imagine that you could rent anything on Park Place for only $35.) Be sure to check out the entire gallery at the source link below, and hopefully one day we'll also see the real-life inspiration behind Monopoly's new feline token.
