New York-New York is another great casino-hotel resort in Las Vegas that is worth seeing. It is located on Las Vegas Boulevard South and has a gaming space of over 7800 square metres. As its name implies, New York-New York is influenced a lot by the city of New York. The style of the building reminds of the old New York style and there are a few towers, which resemble the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building.
There are more important New York signs there, such as a lake in front of the casino, which is a representation of New York Harbour, a 45-metre-tall replica of the Statue Of Liberty and also replicas of several other New York buildings, such as the Whitney Museum Of American Art and the Soldier and Sailors Monument.
After the September 11, 2001 attacks, people spontaneously sent various tributes to New York-New York, especially T-shirts from police, fire and rescue departments around the country. These were displayed along the fence in front of the “Lady Liberty” replica. The twin towers of the World Trade Center have never been included in the skyscrapers depicted in the resort’s facade; it is claimed the facade is meant to represent New York City as it was in the 1940s. The 9/11 Memorial was removed in 2013 for a casino expansion.
Within the resort, particular gambling areas, lounges, restaurants, and meeting rooms are named after New York City neighborhoods or landmarks. The main casino area, for example, is named after Central Park, while the shops are modeled after Greenwich Village. The building process of New York-New York was completed at the cost of 460 million dollars and the casino opened in 1997.
The casino contain more than 1,500 slots in varying denominations including: Wheel of Fortune, Megabucks, Jackpot Party, Blazing 7’s, Top Dollar, Sex & the City, Monopoly, Goldfish, Wizard of Oz.
