Las Vegas Blvd

Las Vegas Blvd is the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas City History - 1947 -

March: The Flamingo reopens for business. This time, Siegel's attempt is successful, and the resort begins turning a profit by the end of the month.

June: Ben Siegel is murdered in Virginia Hill's Beverly Hills estate. His death sparks an enormous amount of publicity for Las Vegas, and Americans begin to see Las Vegas as a more glamorous, risky city.
