A large crowd gathered on the beach in Atlantic City today to say “goodbye” to Trump Plaza. The plaza opened in 1984 and after 30 years, was shut down in 2009. Trump’s casino, a victim of an oversaturated casino market in Atlantic City, NJ, was the last of four casinos to close. The building has remained vacant since that time.
Billionaire Carl Icahn now owns the property where Trump Plaza once stood.
Not everyone who came to see the Trump Plaza implode cheered, many were employees of the Trump Plaza who were heartbroken to see it come down.
People gathered to say Goodbye to Trump Plaza as it Imploded today in Atlantic City. Many worked there for years, a married couple met there. Many tears were shed as people watched the building collapse.#Trump #TrumpPlaza #implode
