Trump Plaza - Atlantic City Beach
Three Atlantic City casinos closed already this year - The Atlantic Club closed in January. The Showboat and the 2-year old Revel both closed a few days ago, right after the Labor Day weekend.
The hotel/casino at the far right of this photo, Trump Plaza, is closing later this month. I had the opportunity to spend a couple of long weekends at Trump Plaza over the past 2 years, including the July 4th weekend this year. On the news yesterday there was a report that the Trump Taj Mahal casino has notified state authorities that it may also close soon. It's estimated that somewhere between 7,000 - 8,000 permanent jobs will have been lost in Atlantic City this year.
