Neonopolis
Las Vegas, NV
2006: 2014:
Neonopolis opened in 2002. The complex features stores and entertainment inside the Fremont Street Experience. More than a dozen vintage signs from around the country are clustered around an elevator tower. Many of the signs came from Track 16, a gallery in Santa Monica, CA which closed in 2012. The signs were moved to Las Vegas and restored by YESCO. Unfortunately, by 2014, much of the neon was not functioning properly.
