Binions on Fremont Street Las Vegas




Binions on Fremont Street Las Vegas





Fremont Street was the major street in the downtown Las Vegas casino corridor. It is, or was the address for many of the famous casinos such as Binion's Horseshoe, Eldorado Club, Fremont Hotel and Casino, Golden Gate Hotel & Casino, Golden Nugget, The Mint, and the Pioneer Club. Prior to the construction of the Fremont Street Experience, Fremont Street was the picture of Las Vegas that was included in virtually every television show and movie that wanted to display the lights of Las Vegas. The abundance of neon earned the street the nickname of Glitter Gulch. Fremont Street dates back to 1905, when Las Vegas itself was founded. While gambling was well established prior to being legalized, the Northern Club in 1931 received one of the first 6 gambling licenses issued in Nevada and the first one for Fremont Street. Glitter Gulch was closed to vehicle traffic in September, 1994 to begin construction on the Fremont Street Experience.

The Frement Street Experience (FSE) is a pedestrian mall and attraction that occupies the westernmost 5 blocks of Fremont Street. The attraction is a barrel vault canopy, 90 feet high at the peak, that covers four blocks or approximately 1,500 feet. It was the first Las Vegas project of architect Jon Jerde, who went on to design the facade of Treasure Island, the Bellagio, and other projects on the Las Vegas Strip. The underside of the canopy is covered with an LED display, referred to as "Viva Vision" and built by the LG Corporation, programmed to show periodic sound-and-light presentations after dark. While Las Vegas is known for never turning the outside casino lights off, each show begins by turning off the lights on all of the buildings, including the casinos, under the canopy.

The initial display contained about 2.1 million lightbulbs controlled by 32 computers located in kiosks on the mall. The sound system, using speakers suspended over the mall, was rated at 350,000 watts. Strobe lights were added at some point to provide additional entertainment options on Disco Nights. Displaying images that looked "real" took some innovation. New techniques were developed to make these curved, low-resolution images viewable from the ground. One adjustment was to move images slowly across the display to prevent blurring. The 2001 upgrade to the sound system raised the power to 550,000 watts. The 2004 upgrade features a 12.5-million LED display and more color combinations than the original display. The old control system was replaced by a central control room using 10 computers.











The Wynn Las Vegas




The Wynn Las Vegas





The Wynn Las Vegas. Built primarily on the former site of the Desert Inn, the Wynn Las Vegas opened on April 28, 2005 which also happens to be Wynn's wife's birthday, the 55th Anniversary of the opening of the original Desert Inn, and five years from the day Wynn purchased the site. Built at a cost of US$2.7 billion, it was the largest privately-funded construction project in the nation, the resort features 4,750 rooms, a Ferrari / Maserati automobile dealership, private golf course, numerous restuarants and 111,000 sq ft of casino space.

In contrast to Wynn's previous hotels Bellagio, The Mirage, and Treasure Island, there is no Las Vegas Strip attraction to draw attention. Additionaly the themeing of the Wynn is much more subdued.

Unfortunately it was late morning when I took this picture and there was not a cloud in sight which made for some incredibly harsh shadows and some rainbow like flare on the building.
