Thousands of people gathered to watch the attempt, including in boats, a helicopter and two banner planes. Wallenda traversed line connecting cranes in front of the Atlantic Club Casino Hotel and the Tropicana Casino & Resort.
His tight rope was 100 feet in the air and 1,300 feet long.
In June, Wallenda wowed the masses when he did a similar stunt 200 feet above Niagara Falls.
He told WCBS radio that the variable winds will be the biggest challenge for his Atlantic City effort, which he called "a very unique walk."
