More Bad News for Atlantic City as Casino Closures Increase

By Richard Sharp

Last month brazen robbers held Caesars Casino in Atlantic City to ransom. At the time rumours were circulating around that some of Caesars big name competitors could soon disappear from the famous boardwalk. Next month these rumours could come to fruition, unless buyers come forward that is. 

2014 has already seen the Atlantic Club close its doors in January. Donald Trump's Plaza casino is also expected to shut up shop in September, with both the Revel and Showboat also struggling to find buyers to keep them afloat. 

Heather Perez, a local historian and archivist, explained, "People came here as their first place to go on vacation in the Northeast. Later on, people came here because it was the only place to go to have alcohol during Prohibition, and later on people came here because we were the only people with casinos on the East Coast."

The future of Altantic City is clearly in question, but it can at least rely on its rich history to keep tourists flocking to the boardwalk. Whether they want to enter the famous casinos remains to be seen. Perez continued with an optimistic remark, "Atlantic City has always been about rebirth, so it’s always been about reinvention". As with other tourist destinations this remains to be seen.
