I lived in Las Vegas 25 years ago. I have noticed all the stores in what used to be New Town are now closed and there is nothing for the youth to do. All the exciting things that were part of the weekend are no longer. The cruise was very exciting and brought a lot of money downtown and commodore to the youth.
Now that there is no cruise, the stores, except for a few, are closed due to lack of exposure. When the cruise was happening, the stores were flourishing as a direct result of exposure. Because of the stores closing, jobs are lost and crime has increased for the youth.
