Open since 1997, New York - New York Hotel & Casino is one of the most recognizable structures on the Las Vegas Strip with its replica of a mini-Manhattan skyline, Statue of Liberty included. You can experience its Big Apple theme inside too, by visiting Times Square and Greenwich Village neighborhood areas.
New York - New York’s signature attraction is its Big Apple Coaster & Arcade featuring a roller coaster that takes you on a looping adventure in front of the Strip. If you prefer solid ground, explore New York-style sidewalk dining at Village Street Eateries, head to Coyote Ugly for drinks, or check out the dueling pianos at Bar at Times Square. New York - New York is also home to Vegas’ sexiest Cirque du Soleil show, Zumanity.
If you’re only interested in seeing the hotel from the outside, book a hop-on hop-off tour or a helicopter night flight. For a guided experience that includes New York - New York, opt for a bar crawl or photography tour.
Things to Know Before You Go

- If you plan to walk along the Strip, give yourself plenty of time—the walk between enormous resort properties is often longer than you'd think.
- To ensure you get the seats and dates you want, book tickets to Zumanity ahead of time.
