The Atlantic City, N.J., Planning Board has approved a $12 million expansion for Steel Pier, including a 200-foot Ferris wheel and a boardwalk extension. The Ferris wheel would take guests on a 20-minute ride in 42 fully enclosed gondolas. Steel Pier President Anthony Catanoso says the project is expected to be finished by the first quarter. The proposal must gain City Council approval.
