Statement of Significance (as of designation - February 27, 1987):
The remaining edifice that best recalls the city's historic heyday as a seaside resort. Is the largest structure on the Boardwalk and is significant in the history of large-span structures, containing, when it was built, the largest room with an unobstructed view and the largest pipe organ in the world. Is also the scene of America's greatest pageants, the Miss America Contest.
