One of the most iconic landmarks along the Strip in Las Vegas is the Statue of Liberty replica. It is part of the massive New York-New York Hotel & Casino. It is predictably themed on New York City and its architecture is meant to evoke the New York City skyline of the 1940s.

The dazzling neon lights of the Strip can be confusing for first-timers, so check out a guide of the Las Vegas Strip before going to America's iconic Sin City. Another way to see the Strip is with a bird's view of the Vegas Strip with a scenic helicopter flight.

In addition to the Statue of Liberty replica, the casino also has replicas of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Main Immigration Building on Ellis Island, the Grand Central Terminal, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Soldiers and Sailors Monument.

Continuing the New York City theme inside the casino, its gambling areas, restaurants, meeting rooms, lounges, etc are named after various New York City neighborhoods and landmarks.
