Some final pictures from Las Vegas ....
Bellagio hotel - fountain that appeared in "Ocean's Eleven"
Flamingo hotel - the front is from Bugsy Siegel's famous hotel, as depicted in the movie 'Bugsy'
From the top of the Paris hotel :
The Strip, and New York, New York in the daytime.
The 'old' Las Vegas - downtown Fremont Street:
Venetian hotel - a quite credible reproductio of the real thing (Piazza St. Marks in Venice - middle photo). As an aside, the tower (called the camponile), was used as a model for the water tower at Jones Beach in Long Island (right photo).
Freedom Tower - first columns placed in Ground Zero 2006-12-26
Just before the holidays the relatives of the victims of 9/11 signed the first 2 columns (the ones in white), and were dedicated in a ceremony with former Gov. Pataki. I took these photos the day after, from the temporary bridge on Vesey St. (north side of Ground Zero) going across West St., looking south.
