New York-New York is rebuilding its
MGM-Mirage property submitted plans last week for a new 280-foot sign and a
large memorial to New Yorkers killed in the 9-11 terrorist attacks.
Though details are sketchy, GamingToday
has learned that the memorial will consist of two 75-foot-tall flagpoles with
banners, commemorative plaques, display cabinets and other decorative features.
Special lighting and an audio system also will be installed.
In addition, the resort proposes
erecting a building-sign facade over its Tropicana Avenue driveway. Sources say
the sign may include a crawling ticker-tape style motif. Large video screen
animation is also part of the neon-highlighted package
