Las Vegas Motels

I have been seeing some very cool old motels especially in the ‘Naked City’ neighborhood – the area between ‘The Strip’ and ‘Downtown’ thats consists of vacant lots, tattoo parlours, bail bond offices, beat-up apartment buildings and a few 1930s-era houses,and lots of wedding chapels and of course amazing motels – it has remained a low-rent haven for crime, drugs and prostitution in the shadow of the Stratosphere Tower which also provides a safe visual reference points for tourists who brave a walk and get lost as I did…

The great video below and photos are from an incredible tribute site with lots and lots more retro-romantic Vegas motel imagery…‘Las Vegas Motels Then and Now’
