The Disappearing Taj Mahal in Atlantic City

The darkness of the Taj Mahal and the well-lit Hard Rock Cafe. The past and the future of the property.   Most of it is for sale or will be removed. Next week all of the Taj Mahal-inspired facade will be removed. This will soon be just a memory. Soon the only way you will be able to see the Taj will be in old movies like The Long Kiss Goodnight, Snake Eyes, and Rounders. Just a few of the massive chandeliers. Some are for sale for hundreds of dollars. After being in other casinos on the Boardwalk, this empty floor felt rather post-apocalyptic. The main floor is just part of a $500 million renovation and rebranding plan. The back of the chairs display the iconic logo. The gaming tables and chairs are now being sold to anyone who is willing to pay. Even the irons are for sale. Supposedly this will all be redone and opened by Memorial Day next year by Hard Rock International. Another view further back of the casino floor.
