What's Wrong With This Photo #435

For those who didn't know, I used to work for Ticketbastard... managing the teams that built stuff for their websites. One of the projects I worked on back in the day was the "old" Vegas page.... the one with the flash map which used data pulled from an XML file. Maybe you remember it.

Anyways, Ticketbastard has redone its Las Vegas page... doing away with the map and replacing it with the above. Can anybody guess how old that stock photo is based on the stuff they see (despite the blurryness)?

Long live Burgerpipe!

Since the Boardwalk and Aladdin are still there, and THEhotel construction hasn't started yet, I'm assuming 2000. Anytime in the late 90's or early 2000's could work.

Gotta be after 2000 and before 2003. Aladdin was built and opened late 2000 and THEhotel was built in 2003.

Just a very quick guess, 1999 is the first thing that popped into my mind. Aladdin opened in 2000, but I'm sure it was being lit up before it actually opened. I'm curious to hear the trick. I'm not sure what would tell you exactly the year for sure this was taken. Obviously the date on the picture will, but did something super obvious change the skyline, enough that it couldn't have been off by a year or so?
