I have lived in Atlantic City all my life and the Sands was here as long as I. I used to work there. Its sad to see it go but everything doesn't last forever...
I hear that there are safty measures taken to ensure the prevention of any health risks resulting from the implosion. There are still some skeptics that would rather watch from their homes then up close and personal. This is a historical event.
My prayers are that no one will get injured or sick and that it goes down successfully.....

A very sad story. I have been there many times over the past decade. I was even there for the liquidation sale. I look forward to the new casino when it opens. But I will always remember the sands.
