6:34 am
to get the the perfect right glass for this place that would reflect the beach and the sand and the sunrisees, they would have never imagined what we would have less than three years after it opened in 2012 and that is classic, cheap chains here signaling that this place is closed down for good. as revel casino. the name off the front, and look at the video i shot at 4:40 this morning on my cell phone. they didn't want any professional photography so media was kept outside and i was able to walk through and so surprised not to see more people trying to get a last minute bet in. probably a dozen gamblers at the most, employees out numbered the betters the at 4:40 and this last hour and a half of gambling. just annex stream sad sight. i had to walk a long way to find the first person in there and not many more after that. one lady at a slot machine, one guy at the cashier,
6:35 am
cashing in his last chips and within guy just walking around doing what i was doing and just looking to place one last time. i met some employees in there as they were taking pictures with each other, and taking one last picture between the slot machine and they were all smiling and all happy, which was a big surprise. i asked them to talk to us and tell us why they were in such a good mood on such a bad day. >> this place, we made it, what it should be, we thought we were going to be here for 20 years. i thought i was going to retire here. i have to start all over at 54 years old, hoping to, and come back and, that is what i think will happen. i have a feeling that maybe within a week we will find out that somebody bought the the place and they will let us know and we will not even have to reapply. we're the cream of the crop. they will bring us right back and we will train other people. >> a lot of people we left behind we are working back in this bitter position, and in

6:37 am
attendants all getting together on the slot floor when two rows, taking one last happy smiling picture, and what a great attitude they have. they are all convince that had somebody who necessary how to run a casino will take this big beautiful building and reopen it up as casino hotel and rehire them. they were last 17 and original 65 slot attendants hired and they call themselves cream of the crop, best in atlantic city casinos and they say next operators will want and hire the best and they're convinced they will be back here and back working real soon. >> sure hope so. >> let's hepp that is in the wish full thinking, steve, thanks. 6:37. vandals causing thousands of dollars in damage to several cars in one philadelphia neighborhood. >> what makes this even worse is that they say that this happened before, fox 29's dawn timmeney is live in northeast philadelphia with this troubling story. how frustrating. >> reporter: exactly. very frustrating. it seems this area f street seems to be a target for
