    steelpierHour 2
    Atlantic City’s Steel Pier was called, “The Showplace of the Nation.” Writer and radio producer STEVE LIEBOWITZ has put together a collection of essays and photos telling the eighty-year story of the diving horses, big bands, acrobats and other entertainment one could take in down the shore for the price of one ticket. We’ll talk with Liebowitz and with one of the Pier’s former diving horse riders, SARAH HART. Leibowitz’s new book is called, “Steel Pier, Atlantic City.”
