Project Overview

The New York-New York Hotel and Casino was designed to resemble the New York City skyline of the 1940’s. Built with 12 New York-style skyscrapers housing 2,024 guest rooms, the hotel stands at approximately one third the actual size of New York’s architecture.

The tallest tower of the project reaches 529-feet and 47-stories imitating the design of the Empire State Building. The mock skyline also includes a 35-story Chrysler Building, and skyscrapers resembling the Seagram Building, Lever House and Municipal Building of New York.
