This being Atlantic City, nobody cares about the mismanagement of the space occupied by the dumpsters and the dumpster enclosure. Land areas are not precious around here right now.

Exploding fireworks of clump of delightful goldenrod in a private lot.
It's hard to see it from all the way over here, but it's the "private lot" for Mr. James Hairstylist, which closed in 2013. "But don't paint over the sign and don't let people park here for free, I guess," I said disapprovingly.
