Atlantic City Historical Museum hosts crew from NJTV show

Talking Miss AmericaAn NJTV show scheduled to debut this fall visited the Atlantic City Historical Museum on June 20 to film an episode focused on the city’s history. “Drive By History” show co-hosts Ken Magos and Cindy Perman interviewed Atlantic City Library and Atlantic City Historical Museum archivist Heather Perez about some of the moments, people and places that have helped define Atlantic City, such as the creation of the boardwalk, Miss America and Convention Hall. In addition to shooting footage at the Historical Museum, the crew also filmed at Steel Pier and the site of Dr. Jonathan Pitney’s historical marker, located at Arkansas and Atlantic avenues. The episode is slated to air in 2016. Every day motorists pass by countless history markers and say, “one of these days I’m going to stop and read that.” On Drive By History, Magos and Perman not only stop and read those signs, they delve deeper into the history, uncovering rare details. Drive By History discovers the hidden treasures of New Jersey in a fact-filled and entertaining way.
