Old weathered building in New York City? Well, not exactly. This is another building replica in the downstairs food court of the New York, New York Hotel in Las Vegas. I liked the detail of this building.
BTW, I only gambled $20 while there just to say I did it:) There is so much else to do (eat, site see, photography, shows, etc.) you don't have to throw your money around unless you just like doing that! And I know...a lot of us do:)

what a fascinating remake and a great shot for sure, Bill, have only been once in Las Vegas and it's along time ago, when I was sweet 17 and it was fascinating to me and I only played once too on a slot machine and won and took my money to buy a indian made necklace for souvenir... still have it

Man, what a cool capture! Actually, I did think it was a building in a questionable part of some town, and was going to kid you about 'what's a nice guy like you doing in a place like that?' But now that I know the facts, I won't. Aren't you glad? :-D (yes, I have a slightly warped sense of humor ;-P)
I really do love this photo, though. You got the exposure right on, and there's lots of delicious detail in both the bright and dark areas. Awesome shot!
So, you gambled 20 bucks, and won enough to actually get a room in that hotel, right? LOL!

Capital POV used in this shot of what looks like an old depression era building on a fun, anything-goes street in Chicago or New York.
And, all I do is eat, people-watch and gamble when I'm in Vegas. Otherwise, no shows, no lounging by the pool, no nothing. Ooops, almost forgot...I got married there once.
