Question:

Las Vegas, as we all know, is a fast pace wide-open 24-hour city. Always something new is being planned or built. With new building projects in mind, I often wonder should anything be saved as a historical monument or should everything continual to be imploded like the Frontier Casino was this past week to make room for a new $4 billion project? What is your opinion? Why or Why Not? We want to hear from you!

I think it would be great to have some historical items of yesterdays of Las Vegas, but not sure where it would be.  Darren A.  Miami, FL

I believe that the buildings should be saved as a historical monument because with all of these $4 billion projects it is taking away from what Las Vegas really is and was. How can Las Vegas remember the Elvis's and the Sinatra's without keeping some of the historical buildings that stars past has stayed at and performed at.  Mischell May  Tempe AZ

I enjoy going to the new casinos like the Wynn, but I'm also interested in the history of the past (for ex. The Alladin is now Planet Hollywood.The Alladin is where Elvis got married); so maybe you could have a museum casino devoted to the history of new & former casinos. I especially enjoyed going to the Debbie Reynolds museum which contained memorabilia of movie stars & I also enjoyed visiting Liberace Museum. It would be nice if all the museums were located on the strip. Edith from San Jose

With the oldest culturally significant historical monument being the 60-year old Siegel's Marker (Yes, he died in 1947) in the Flamingo, The Strip is a fantasy land of promise, not a repository of of the past. There are other places in Las Vegas which can be more appropriately preserved for history. Stay ahead of the preservationists and keep recycling the buildings before they get on the historical registry. Besides, nothing younger than me should be considered "historical".  Don Bartley  Portland, OR

Bring on the new.  I am not a fan of old things, much rather see what new things can impress me rather than going to the same old building.  I love the new architecture and all the state of the art buildings.   Ann. Baltimore MD

My opinion is that there should be a park, within walking distance of the strip, that would allow visitors to get away from the noise and hubbub. It is amazing what a nice Quiet walk in the park can do to a person. Thank you,  Doug Brobst  Virginia Beach, VA

I strongly believe that in this day and age, cities lack culture and history is so often forgotten. This is especially true in Las Vegas. I wish they would stop building for a few years until there is a demand for expansion. I do agree that should save something as an historical monument of vintage Vegas. I feel sadness when they implode everything up to make room for new projects. They're blowing up more than a building they're blowing up history, memories and places that hold meaning to people.  Nicholas Daginis  Las Vegas Nevada
