Steel Pier For Sale

The Trump Entertainment Group is reportedly planning to auction off the Steel Pier amusement complex in Atlantic City in late August.

A Trump spokesman said the company is in the gaming business and Steel Pier, across the Boardwalk from the Trump Taj Mahal, is not part of the casino.

Bidding for the facility, opened in 1898, will reportedly start at $2.5 million.

The landmark venue hosted stars including W.C. Fields, Mae West, Benny Goodman, Guy Lombardo, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and The Three Stooges, to name a few, and the original Miss America Pageant.
