So even the wildlife hates Revel. It can't catch a break..

at the rate the revel used to comp drinks, it must take a real long time before you start seeing giant seagulls.

Never heard of this at any other Boardwalk properties. The window glass used in hotels is really strong. It has to be to withstand hurricanes and Northeasters.

I walked around the entire building a couple of times this weekend, the last time being four hours ago. This was not done by seagulls. There are no seagulls approaching anywhere near 60 pounds as Mr. Straub seems to think. Revel survived Hurricane Sandy without so much as blinking so a few seagulls can't do anything. It makes a good story though. Here's what I found.

There is only one broken window, not the three reported. The two areas on the side of the building that look like the tinted glass is missing are actually doors. You have to look closely to see it. Police are looking into it and have not determined the cause. The window, on the Boardwalk in the casino section, is low enough that an average person could hit it with a rock. That's what the theory is right now.

The glass did not come down in dangerous shards. It is safety glass just like auto glass. There are still some small pieces on the Boardwalk under the window.

It does not rain in through the broken window. You can't see it but there is clear glass behind the outer glass. That's why the curtains never move when a strong wind comes off the beach.

Revel security and the AC police have both said there was only one window involved.

As with all things Revel, there is Reality & then there is- " Revelity"
"This is the largest gull in the world, noticeably outsizing a herring gull (Larus argentatus). Only a few other gulls, including Pallas's gull (Ichthyaetus ichthyaetus) and glaucous gull (Larus hyperboreus), come close to matching this species' size.[4] It is 64–79 cm (25–31 in) long with a 1.5–1.7 m (4 ft 11 in–5 ft 7 in) wingspan and a body weight of 0.75–2.3 kg (1.7–5.1 lb).
