Today's the day, although it's not a day we should really be excited about.

The Revel Resort and Casino in Atlantic City, which cost $2 billion to build and only opened two years ago, is closing today. Here's a statement on the hotel's website regarding the logistics of the closure. Guests were actually checked out of the hotel yesterday at 11am. No late check-outs! Although, apparently there was a fire alarm that went off at 1am but the nigthclubs at the hotel partied on, mostly filled with employees. Here's an excellent article on the last hours of the casino. Below are our photo galleries from when we first went inside Revel.

And here are a few observations from the last days of Revel on social media.

The Showboat Atlantic City, a Caesars Entertainment property, closed on Sunday.

Next up, the Trump Plaza will close on September 16.

It's the end of Atlantic City as we know it. But what will the new Atlantic City look like? No one is quite sure. We have some ideas but it's going to take some time.
