It originally attracted high-stakes gambler and elite guests, offering $1,500 tickets to heavyweight fights, according to The New York Times.

The Trump Plaza first opened in 1984 and was for a time the most successful casino in Atlantic City.

"The way we put Trump Plaza and the city of Atlantic City on the map for the whole world was really incredible", said Bernie Dillon, the events manager for the casino from 1984 to 1991.

As the Associated Press reported, the former casino-now "a smoking pile of rubble"-was "imploded after falling into such disrepair that chunks of the building began peeling off and crashing to the ground".

Demolition crews had set up explosives along the building' structures to knock its legs out from under, bringing the building down on itself.

For those not making the trip to Atlantic City, the city will livestream the event on its website and Facebook page. "It was a special time". I'm sorry to see it go, ' he added.

Mayor Marty Small called it "exciting" and "truly a great day in Atlantic City".

"This is not about Donald Trump".

"There's nothing political at all about us being here", Cavallo said while focusing a miniature telescope on his dashboard.

Trump eventually severed ties with the casino in 2009, following a string of bankruptcy filings, and the Plaza officially shut down in 2014 until billionaire investor Carl C. Icahn acquired it out of bankruptcy in 2016. Onlookers in cars will be charged $10 and herded into a lot most recently used as a pandemic-era food distribution site.

Other hotels also offered their own packages, with champagne and late checkout and spectacular views of the implosion. The gates at 525 N. Albany Ave will open at 7 a.m.

Pyramid Builders of Palm Beach carried out the demolition job, which costs an estimated $15,000, the Palm Beach Daily News reported.
