Once a symbol of the high-rolling life of Donald Trump, the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City has come crashing down. The building was reduced to rubble Wednesday with 3,000 sticks of dynamite. The crumbling building became a hazard and had to go. Hundreds braved frigid temperatures, gathering on the streets and on the beach, to watch the implosion. A series of loud detonations came shortly after 9 a.m.
