Donald Trump's Atlantic City casino implodes, Mar-a-Lago helipad demolished

Donald Trump's Atlantic City casino implodes, Mar-a-Lago helipad demolished”

Louis Woloszyn of Philadelphia, raised in Berlin Borough, NJ, came decked out as a dynamite man to watch the implosion of Trump Plaza in Atlantic City. That's because I've now seen the video of Donald Trump's Atlantic City hotel and casino being blown up.

At one time, the Plaza was the jewel in Trump's Atlantic City crown.

Local hotels sold viewing packages for the implosion, and nearby Bader Field charged $10 per auto to watch the implosion up close.

The once towering symbol of Donald Trump's Atlantic City performance as a real estate magnate and casino wunderkind was turned into dust Wednesday morning when the disgraced former US president's prized Trump Plaza-abandoned and left to decay after a series of bankruptcies and failures-was demolished. One night before a Tyson fight I stopped dead in my tracks and looked about four rows in as the place was filling up, and there were two guys leaning in close and having a private conversation: "Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty". "It was a special time". The Trump Plaza eventually closed in 2014 and has sat abandoned ever since. "So when he left Atlantic City, it wasn't, 'Sorry to see you go.' It was, 'How fast can you get the hell out of here?'" "They never made you feel less-than".

Small proposed using the demolition as a fundraiser for the Boys And Girls Club of Atlantic City, and began an auction for the right to press the button that would bring the structure down.

Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small said the destruction had nothing to do with the former President.

Donald Trump's Atlantic City hotel and casino, once a key figure in the former president's casino empire, was demolished Wednesday morning. Icahn Enterprises, a major real estate developer, bought both the Trump Taj Mahal, which closed in 2016, Trump Plaza and the Trump Entertainment Resorts company.

Trump continued to operate the casino through the early 2000s, but the housing market collapse and subsequent economic recession took a huge hit on the casino business in Atlantic City.
