New Frontier Implosion Video - It's Replacement Is BUTT UGLY

The venerable New Frontier's valiant twenty year attempt at making progress on the Las Vegas Strip stop, has finally come to a close with it's implosion this morning at 2:34am PST. The building that housed the Strip's only mechanical bull came crashing down in a heap of yee haws and cheers from the punters out in the chilly Las Vegas morning.

Video of the implosion has yet to show up on YouTube or the major Vegas media sites as I'm writing this (4:44am), but apparently a video of the blast is located here. It doesn't work for me because I'm one of the lucky people who uses a Mac. They got some excellent camera angles of the New Frontier going down and the descending plunger done up in fireworks is a great touch.

I just did a low-fi video grab of the implosion and have uploaded it to YouTube. If you see a camera image - that means it's still being processed. Hopefully the good quality video will be YouTube'd shortly.

In related news, Elad publicly released renderings of 'The Plaza' - the joint to built atop the ashes of the New Frontier:

I wonder if Herman Munster is the concierge.
