Trump Taj Mahal decor set to go to auction
Furnishings and decor from the shuttered Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort in Atlantic City are set to be auctioned off Thursday, as a Hard Rock Hotel and Casino prepares to set up shop in the location.
Asset liquidation service National Content Liquidators’ auction will begin Thursday and will continue daily until all items are gone.
Among the offerings up for auction are chandeliers, televisions, beds, vases and a grand piano.
The $1 billion Trump Taj Mahal was opened in 1990, becoming the world’s largest casino at the time. It filed for bankruptcy in 1991.
The casino eventually came under the ownership of billionaire investor Carl Icahn, who closed it last October after a bitter labor dispute. He sold the property to Hard Rock in March for roughly $50 million.
Hard Rock is planning a complete renovation of the property that will wipe out all traces of the casino’s past life, including its Indian-inspired theme.
President Trump’s name is no longer on the building, according to The Associated Press.
