Just in case you were planning a weekend getaway to Atlantic City tomorrow, Governor Chris Christie announced today that roads to Atlantic City are reopened, and the 12 casinos that have been closed for Sandy now have permission to reopen for business.
The casinos, while remaining undamaged, have reportedly been losing some $5 million a day in revenue; last year, Hurricane Irene shut down the casinos for three days, when the city lost $45 million in business. This time around, the city has been shut until Sunday, meaning the casinos lost more than four days of business.
News reports say that one casino is already open for business: Golden Nugget Atlantic City opened some two hours after Christie's announcement. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, in the meantime, will open today at 4 p.m.
Luckily for all Atlantic City residents and businesses, the "boil water" advisory for Atlantic City has also been lifted, New York Magazine reports, making getting a glass of water that much easier.
