The photos in this post, some snapped on Tuesday and others today, detail the current state of things at Bill's, New York-New York, Monte Carlo and the Linq's High Roller observation wheel. We'd like to thank John N. and Donovan S. for lending their lenses to the cause.
If we would have had some glass cleaner, we would have scrubbed this ourselves.
For those who have wondered about the impact of Monte Carlo's construction (new pics above) to pedestrian traffic, they've actually closed a lane of traffic down so that passers by can walk in front of the resort. The sidewalk has been completely blocked by the demolition now underway so folks must venture onto the asphalt to get by. There are barricades in place, however, to protect against traffic.
Lastly, while walking by The Linq, the coming open-air shopping and dining district set for the space between The Quad and Flamingo, we spied The Vortex in action once again. We're still not sure exactly what it will be used for, but it continues to catch the eye. We captured a few seconds on video and have shared it below. A warning, turn your volume down first. Between the music blaring from Margaritaville and the clamoring of construction, it was a Midol moment, for sure.
And, it's a bit hard to distinguish in the video so here's a closeup snap of the electronics at work:
