It depends on who you asked. I'm 100% sure that if this question is posed to Trump, an arrogant & outlandish answer from him is an absolute yes, despite his record of MULTIPLE BANKRUPTCIES ...

And if you ask him a follow up question of how he will turn AC around, he will then give you this arrogant & outlandish response: "Trust me!"

I don't want it to be saved in the definition of what the owners think. I want it to maintain a similar course as it is right now. Currently I have a reservation for Caesars luxury ocean facing room for late July. 4 nights comped with a year tier score of 459. If they get "saved" then there is no way in hell I can get a free beach vacation in the summer with almost no play.

Problem is much bigger than the casino itself. So no.

The issue is the whole city of Atlantic City itself. Clean the whole city up, have a viable international airport and turn it into an international destination. Yet AC has totally neglected every step of the way. So many layers of problems where the only way to solve this is where the state has to step in. Which looks like it is not going to do since NJ is going to hold a referendum come Nov. 2016 to allow casinos on its northern end.

AC as it once was is dead. I bet they're near bottom though. I'm curious if Resorts and Trump can continue being in direct competition (don't know the marina side too well).

As noted, there are too many problems with the city. I walked from the Greyhound station to Trump Taj along Atlantic in broad daylight... and still didn't feel comfortable enough to walk with my ear buds in. I say this as a big guy with a giant beard.

Sorry but I don't see anyone paying him 4 times what he paid to buy Revel.

Call a spade a spade.

The problem is the ghetto adjacent to the boardwalk casinos.

They've had DECADES to clean it up, gentrify it, make it go away, and nada.

Get rid of the poor near the casinos; build a good airport; put in a world class amusement park (Star Wars themed?) and voila, AC is back.

Otherwise, continued decline until the Jersey Devil gnaws on its corpse.

How would you gentrify AC? Southern Jersey is a pretty nice place, who in their right mind would move into AC? It isn't closer to their jobs (despite the dealers that remain), it isn't some bustling city, and you have to pay a frickin' toll to arrive/leave. Even if you clean it up (people and area in general), I see no way it would/could gentrify.

I've said many times, the fact that I can't jump on a plane from any of the DC airports (esp ultra low cost BWI) to ACY is crazy.
