Steel Pier... your days are numbered.
Atlantic City's famous Steel Pier family amusement area will be demolished in late 2007. The ever-caring Donald Trump has let the family that owns the concession area but not the property (that belongs to the Taj Mahal) have another season before it's demolished to make room for a "shopping-gaming-condo" complex. It was initially supposed to be taken down this month. Hmmmm... why the delay? Perhaps it's because the AC Historical Commission has begun a lawsuit as the AC Info Center lady suggested? Or maybe, it's trying to get the right permits to build a permanent residential structure on the OCEAN?
PS: Lucky and I were in AC this weekend (after driving down to DE for a surprise 30th birthday party) for the Philadelphia Candy Show. Got a lot of great info... too bad I don't really care for chocolate!
