Vera Coking‘s Atlantic City property [seen here in a 1990s photo by Jack E Boucher] that she refused to sell to Bob Guccione, who decided to build his Penthouse Boardwalk Hotel and Casino around it.  The casino was unable to secure a gaming license and/or ran out of money, and construction stopped.  Donald Trump bought and tore down the unfinished project, and ran into the same roadbloack that was Vera Coking and her property, when trying to build a parking lot for limos next to his own casino
