The 16-story Las Vegas New Frontier casino was brought down to give way to new projects. The hotel/casino was the second property to open on the Strip. It will be replaced by an $8 billion megaresort.
It supposedly hosted Elvis Presley's debut and was the first themed casino. It was known for its cowboy village appearance, cheap rooms, and low key environment.
The real estate will be replaced with a hotel of some 3500 rooms, private residences, etc.
It came down with 1000 pounds of explosives.
