Image Description: Statue of Liberty in Las Vegas. This replica of the the Statue of Liberty at the New York-New York Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada is the second largest replica of the statue in the world.

Of course, the Las Vegas lady is also considerably younger almost 17 years old, compared to the 127 years of the original. The statue at the New York-New York Hotel and Casino is made mostly from carved Styrofoam that has been coated and reinforced with fiberglass and exterior drywall; she was built by Primadonna Resorts, a predecessor of MGM Resorts, and the current owners of New York-New York.
