Sands No More

By Rick Racela

ATLANTIC CITY – Hundreds of people chanted “Sands no more!” after what many said was the best fireworks show they have ever witnessed. The demolition makes way for a new mega-casino in the $1.5 billion to $2 billion range to be built on the Sands site by Pinnacle Entertainment, which is no small feat compared to the 100,000 tons of rubble that is going take about three months to clean up. It took less than 20 seconds for the 500-room tower to come crashing to the ground at 9:37 p.m. EDT in the first implosion of an East Coast casino. Governor Jon Corzine and Pinnacle Entertainment Chairman, Dan Lee, did the honors by pulling the switch to set off the implosion.
