Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

"This is the end result of all the bright lights... and the comp trips, of all the champagne... and free hotel suites,
and all the broads and all the booze. It's all been arranged just for us to get your money.
That's the truth about Las Vegas. We're the only winners. The players don't stand a chance. "

-- Sam "Ace" Rothstein, Casino, 1995

Closed? Really?

Here we ago again with urban blight in Las Vegas.  This location is on Tropicana about 2 miles east of the Strip.  What I don't understand is why after a building is demolished, the sign of the former business is allowed to remain standing?  In this case the sign is a target for vandals and taggers -- thereby causing further blight in the area. 

Really?  "The Hop" is closed?  No shit.  Ridiculous.  FYI -- this land is now being used by car washers and street vendors to ply their various trades.  Nice.
