Long Description:
From the Roadside America website:

1/3 Scale Statue Of Liberty, Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge

Las Vegas, Nevada

New York New York -- it looks like a souvenir pop-up postcard. For those too busy or lazy to visit the real thing, Vegas provides a selection of squeezed-together skyscrapers outside of the New York New York Hotel-Casino -- including the Empire State and Chrysler buildings -- one-third the size of those in Manhattan. The disguised towers are jam packed with hotel rooms.

A steep roller coaster twists its way among them -- the real New York should consider the same upgrade. From rooms across the street in the Excalibur, you can hear riders screaming into the wee hours.

There's also a Brooklyn Bridge, and Statue of Liberty -- a giant compared to the Liberty Square mall's Statue of Liberty replica elsewhere in town. Fake tugboats spray water in the "harbor."

Cemented into the wall in front of Miss Liberty are thirty sturdy glass display cases, each containing an artifact (mostly fire dept. t-shirts) left by tourists after 9-11. It was only eerie coincidence, and not conspiracy, that the architect neglected to place the World Trade Center Towers in the fake skyline.

Location: New York New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
