“The Greatest City in Las Vegas” (New York, New York Hotel & Casino)
The New York, New York Hotel & Casino opened in Las Vegas in 1997. Its trademarked slogan is "The Greatest City in Las Vegas."

The casino duplicated many New York City landmarks. Casinos themed after Paris and ancient Egypt would follow. New York, New York Hotel & Casino features a "Big Apple Bar."

In the late 1990s, the New York, New York Hotel & Casino asked me about the origin of "the big apple." I told them, but next time, fellows, a tip of some sort would be nice.

New York-New York Hotel & Casino is a hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip at 3790 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas, Nevada. It is one of the largest casinos owned by MGM Mirage.

New York-New York uses the New York City theme of its name in many ways. Its architecture creates an impression of the New York City skyline; the hotel includes several towers configured to resemble New York City skyscrapers, such as the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building. In front of the property is a pool representing New York Harbor, with a 150 ft (46 m) tall (half-scale) replica of the Statue of Liberty, a roller coaster, and a replica of the Brooklyn Bridge. Within the resort, particular gambling areas, bars, eating areas and meeting rooms are named after New York City neighborhoods or landmarks. The main casino area, for example, is named after Central Park, while the "Village Eateries" food court is modeled after New York City's Greenwich Village, even including real menus from New York Chinese takeout restaurants taped to the doors of the mock apartment buildings. New York-New York uses the trademarked slogan "The Greatest City in Las Vegas".

Las Vegas' newest entertainment venue, The Big Apple Bar, provides plenty of intimate seating and a huge selection of deliciously unique specialty beverages. Guests can party in almost 4,000 square feet of space to the hottest live local and national entertainers as they perform on a stage that rises above the bar itself. The bar is a perfect location to wind down from a hard day or gear up for a high-energy night.
