ATLANTIC CITY - Officials say plans are being made to repair cracks on the Boardwalk Empire facade on the Boardwalk. The Atlantic City Press reported that some cracks have appeared there in the past few weeks, emerging in the vinyl along the edges of the facade's panels.

Officials say the problem should be corrected "in the very near future."

The 180-foot facade, in front of Boardwalk Hall near Florida Avenue, was erected in July. The majority of the mural is still visible and unblemished.

The facade, which shows images of 1920s-era storefronts similar to those seen on the HBO series based on the career of political boss Enoch "Nucky" Johnson, was paid for through donations. - AP
