ATLANTIC CITY - This resort faces the prospect of having four major vacancies on its famed Boardwalk come mid-September. The grim reality sank in July 14 when Trump Plaza issued layoff notices and targeted Sept. 16 as the date to cease operating as a casino. Perception is reality in tourism, experts say, and the Boardwalk is synonymous with Atlantic City. How will four hulking, empty buildings sit with visitors - especially at night - and will they impede tourism when Atlantic City needs it the most?

Whatever Hue Q. To was doing to annoy casino patrons in Trump Plaza the night of Sept. 8 - hustling for change, pickpocketing - it was only after casino security stepped in that the real trouble began. Within about 45 minutes, the 25-year-old native of Vietnam was dead, slammed so violently against the wall of a casino back room that the damage to his neck stopped his breathing, according to the county prosecutor and medical examiner. That explanation came later. In the days after To's death, Trump Plaza officials gave this statement, apparently relying on statements from the five security guards who were present when To died: To "stumbled into the arm of a chair.

When Buster Douglas returns from Tokyo, chances are he will not have to check his senses at customs. They probably will have been separated from him by that pugilistic mugger, Mike Tyson. The undisputed heavyweight champion, returning to the scene of his two- round demolition of Tony Tubbs two years ago, will meet Douglas on Saturday night in Tokyo. While Douglas should become Tyson victim No. 38, at least one group hopes for a competitive fight - the officials at Trump Plaza, which will host the match between Tyson and Evander Holyfield on June 18 in Atlantic City.

ONCE UPON a time, Trump Plaza was a jewel in the crown of the East Coast's gambling monopoly. In the late 1980s, the midtown gaming hall was, for lack of a better description, the Borgata of its day. Such was its prestige that cartoonist Garry Trudeau chose it as the location for a series of "Doonesbury" cartoons that imagined a comeback concert by an in-hiding-for-a-decade Elvis Presley. It was also the casino that sponsored Mike Tyson's championship boxing matches at what was then Convention Hall.

Mark Manzoni, a bartender at the doomed Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, has a manila envelope in his hand and a smile on his face. "I just got a job," the Galloway Township resident says. "My last shift at Revel ends at 8 a.m. on Labor Day, and I go down to Maryland Sept. 2. " Manzoni, 50, was the first to arrive and the first hired during the job fair sponsored Tuesday and Wednesday by the Maryland Live! Casino. With the Atlantic Club already dark and Revel, Showboat, and Trump Plaza scheduled to shut down within weeks, an estimated 8,000 Atlantic City casino workers will have lost their jobs this year.

The Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino expects to become the third of Donald Trump's three casinos to file a bankruptcy plan, officials said yesterday. Trump attorney Joseph Fusco told the Casino Control Commission that the casino intends to file a prepackaged bankruptcy - one that has won approval beforehand from creditors and is designed to speed the trip through bankruptcy court. Under the offer, bondholders would exchange $225 million in bonds paying 12 7/8 percent and an additional $25 million in long-term debt for $200 million in bonds paying 12 percent and $100 million in preferred stock with an annual dividend of 10 percent.

Officials declined comment Monday on a report that there were no qualified bidders to buy the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City. Revel's board of directors was reportedly meeting Monday, in advance of a bankruptcy auction that has been delayed until Thursday. Revel is in bankruptcy court for the second time in little more than a year. Executives say the $2.4 billion casino will close and shed its 3,200 employees if a buyer cannot be found. A report Monday by NBC10 said no acceptable bids had been received, citing an unidentified source.

Gov. Christie, in his first remarks about Atlantic City in the wake of news Tuesday that 3,200 more casino workers in the city would soon be out of jobs, announced Wednesday the convening of a summit next month on the resort's future. In a statement issued by his office, Christie - who was traveling in Alabama and Mississippi to boost fellow GOP governors - said there was "no doubt that Atlantic City faces real challenges as the city undergoes revitalization," while also emphasizing signs of progress in non-gaming areas, including luxury-tax receipts and retail wages.

ATLANTIC CITY - The 3,200 workers who have made Revel home the last 28 months are hoping against hope that the casino snags a buyer before its targeted Sept. 10 closing to save their jobs and a key piece of Atlantic City's skyline. If the casino gets shuttered, the vast majority of them will be unemployed and thrown into a glutted labor market that will soon include 2,100 workers laid off at Showboat if it, too, doesn't secure a buyer by Aug. 31, and 1,100 at Trump Plaza when that casino closes on Sept.

Four years ago, Gov. Christie stood on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City and declared that his five-year revitalization plan would give the faltering casino town the chance to become "Las Vegas East. " Since then, conditions in Atlantic City's gambling industry have only gotten worse. The Atlantic Club closed in January. Showboat and Trump Plaza are slated to close this summer. Revel's bankruptcy auction, originally scheduled for Thursday, was postponed to Wednesday. In retrospect, any notion that Atlantic City, saddled with myriad long-standing challenges off the Boardwalk, could become Las Vegas, was, to be kind, ambitious.
