Atlantic City unveils 'Boardwalk Empire' facade

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - August 2, 2011

Officials on Monday unveiled a 180-foot long facade in front of the West Hall of Boardwalk Hall that's a re-creation of some of the TV series' sets.

The facade was created by a billboard company and features special anti-graffiti paint.

The facade was the brainchild of radio personality and Atlantic City Press columnist Pinky Kravitz.

The newspaper reports the Atlantic City Special Improvement District will station an employee nearby to keep the facade safe.
