Atlantic City’s Steel Pier Regresses (One Woman’s Opinion)
The new owners of Atlantic City’s Steel Pier plan to resurrect the diving horse act much like the original attraction made famous in the 1920’s.
The plan was announced this week, when the Casino Redevelopment Authority approved its contribution to the first phase of the Steel Pier improvement project.
The diving horse act made two month reappearance in 1993, but was cancelled following protests by animal rights groups.
The new Pier owners claim the diving horse is iconic, and people need to look at the big picture. They claim this small part of the Steel Pier redevelopment will bring family entertainment back to Atlantic City.
To the developers my question is, what are you thinking? I would never bring children to a spectacle like this.
Jeff Hirst, a New Jersey native who now resides in Ohio, has started an opposition petition. This proposal to bring back diving horses to Atlantic City outrages me, if this outrages you too sign Jeff’s petition.
