Jersey Shore Fact of the Day 63: The Steel Pier is for Sale

The Steel Pier, an iconic part of the Atlantic City Boardwalk, is up for sale.

I'm not surprised. Trump said they were going to knock it down a few years ago to build on top of the site, but it survived, as it has been doing since 1898.

It's going to be auctioned, which gives me a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. It's beachfront, and despite bad gambling revenues, everything else in Atlantic City is booming, according to the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority.

I hope it stays. What would AC be like without the Steel Pier?
