Revel owner blames giant seagulls for broken windows
The owner of Atlantic City's former Revel casino blames giant seagulls for smashing windows in the vacant gambling hall.
Glenn Straub tells The Associated Press that "the biggest seagulls I've ever seen" routinely smash into the glass-covered exterior of the building, which has been vacant for nearly a year.
On Friday, three exterior windows at the former casino, which cost $2.4 billion to build, were missing.
The seemingly endless litigation between Straub and ACR Energy, its sole energy supplier, has hurt both sides.
A bank asserts in a recent court filing that the power plant, ACR Energy, has defaulted on its loans and may not survive.
Straub says he'll install his own heating equipment by November, and plans solar energy atop the parking garage.
