Hoofa's Visitors...

Frontier Hotel 1942-2007

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

Things I see in LV...

With all the empty land in LV it always amazes me how these home and apt. builders will build right on top of a freeway.  Note the huge wall in front of the apt. -- probably built to try and reduce freeway noise.  Like that's going to matter on the upper floors of this place.  I wonder if the freeway units are more expensive to rent because they have a "view."




Las Vegas has been hard hit in the recession and housing crisis.  The unemployment rate is still one of the highest  in the country.  However, one would never know this with the amount of freeway construction, freeway landscape, and sound wall projects currently in progress. 

I suspect there can be only person we have to thank for all this construction work to make our freeways move faster and look better:  That's right, Boss Hogg himself -- Sen. Harry Reid.

   






This last one made me smile.  The license plate is great but then I noticed the type of car.  A plate like this belongs on something like a Maserati, Corvette, or maybe even a higher end BMW.  A Pontiac Firebird?  Come on now...

  1. You've hit it head on. The noise abatement wall is from federal funds and is not charged to the builder of the apartments. The Construction Trade unions are happy. Everyone else is homeless.

    21 PLYR is a great plate but if you want it on a Mazzerati it will have to be GUD21PLYR.
