  2. Great Job. I have traveled to Vegas regularly since 1990, and know quite a bit of the town and have witnessed the changes.
    I Love the movie Casino, and just watched it again, noticing additional landmarks. Noticed the snow around Atomic Liquors for the first time (Kansas City scene), and some more.
    Thanks for this.

  3. I got a call from the location group about using my meat company for the San Marino grocery scene. I couldn't give up my building for the length of time needed for filming. I knew of a out of business meat company down the street from me and helped them get the property secured. I used to deliver meat to the Stardust and would see Lefty most everyday as his office was out by the dock

  5. Fantastic job on this! Also really enjoyed the Breaking Bad & No Country For Old Men pages, and I'm about to dig in to more. I have a correction for one section up there, which you listed as "The Landmark". That awesome "Googie" building was actually the lobby of the old La Concha Motel, and as you stated is now found at the Neon Museum, serving as their entrance.

    It's too bad you didn't snap some photos of the old Riviera, because that was the location for much of the interior casino shots. As you may or may not know, the Riviera is the latest victim of "Implosion Fever" and has just been erased from the North Strip. The Riv was the last remaining original resort structure left, other than parts of the Tropicana further South. Myself and hundreds of others gave our best effort to prevent this obliteration of Rat Pack proportions, but greed & ignorance prevailed yet again.

    Another sad fact regards the Stardust, which was the true subject of the film "Casino", was also unceremoniously blasted into oblivion in 2007, (along with the bungalows from her sadly-underappreciated neighbor the Royal Nevada/ Stardust Auditorium) only to be replaced by a rotting, unfinished multi-million dollar behemoth known as The Echelon.

    It's truly a bona fide tragedy that Las Vegas has less than zero regard for their heritage & history! ...and on that note, anyone interested in helping to preserve what little is LEFT of old Las Vegas & her countless characters & their tales of bygone eras, is welcome to join us at Project: Viva Lost Vegas, which is a history/ charity endeavor I'm working on.
