Vera Coking owns a boarding house on Columbia Place, right next to Donald Trump's Trump Plaza Hotel/Casino. Trump desired Coking's land to build a limousine parking lot. He got the city of Atlantic City to condemn Coking's house in 1993, which attempted to use eminent domain to buy it out from under her. Coking, enlisting the help of an advocacy group, managed to fight the land grab successfully. She still lives at her house surrounded by Trump Plaza's tower, parking lots and entryways.
