Guests of New York-New York experience that singular New York City style accentuated by the intense energy that only Las Vegas can provide.

Dramatic Entry
As guests stroll down the famous Las Vegas Strip and across the 300-foot-long replica of the Brooklyn Bridge, they may forget they are nowhere near Wall Street.

A New York Welcome

As guests take in the excitement of the city, they are likely to meet up with Vinny, New York-New York’s hands-on-host and ambassador of fun, who is available day in and day out to tell guests where to go, what to do, what’s hot and what’s not, in a totally honest, no-apologies New York kind of way.
