    How is the construction coming between New York New York and Monte Carlo? Any ideas when it will be finished? We are going in July and want to be prepared for what we are going to deal with.

    I don't think the arena behind NYNY is going to be finished until the middle of 2016.

    What do you mean by "want to be prepared for what we are going to deal with"? The construction is at least a year from completion, but it's not particularly disruptive if you're walking around. I suppose if you're on the back/west side of NY-NY or Monte Carlo, you might hear it during the day, but it's also reasonably far from both of those buildings.

    That's what I needed to know. 2 years ago we stayed at Flamingo while they were working on The Cromwell. It would wake us up in the morning and every morning when we would leave the hotel they had the sidewalk blocked off, so we had to walk down to Harrah's and cross to CP to go south on the strip.

    Walkways are open on that West side of The Strip. It's not particularly scenic on that frontage section, but it's a short walk past the construction.

    Construction is a good thing, yes, it could minimally affect your stay, but construction is what drives people to Vegas. I am looking forward to seeing the new Arena, the new Resorts World construction, the new resort that's replacing Frontier, and whatever else is going on on the Strip like upgrading Harrah's, Casino Royale, etc.
    Vegas is continually trying to even get better. I'll be there in two weeks, haven't been to Vegas since November, but i know a lot will be going on like it always has. I love the fact that Vegas evolves, never hesitates to take chances, even if it turns out bad. It's a gamble. Steve Wynn took that chance with Mirage and never looked back.
    One of the things that keeps me going back to Vegas is the anticipation on what's coming next..........i'm already excited about Resorts World even though it's still a couple/few years down the road.

    The roof is on, most of the steel she'll is done. I saw only one crane on the SW side today driving on Tropicana but I was paying attention to driving, not the arena.

    When I last stayed there facing the construction it was fascinating to watch but being an older hotel the windows are single pane and noise does make it all the way up and they start early. Lots of beep beep beeps by the equipment backing up. I use a white noise generator, which really helped to drown out the idiotic noise from downtown Nashville last week when I was staying at the Renaissance (a dump).

    Navigating through the construction can be tricky, it's one way in on Park Drive (formerly Rue de Monte Carlo) to Valet and self Parking then out through NYNY back alley by their gagprage to Tropicana or Frank Sinatra. I use the latter to get into Monte Carlo as it bypasses the dreaded strip. Way easier to/from the airport car rental center and generally easier anyway.

    You cannot walk on Park Drive yet, look nice, lots of trees, art work.

    Hope this helps!

    Just got back from a four night stay at Monte Carlo where we were in a high floor room overlooking the Arena construction. I can confirm that they do start early (6am) during the weekdays. It wasn't unbearable noise, but you did hear the steady "beep" of equipment backing up. The construction on the Strip is not very intrusive at all. A few barricades on the edge of the sidewalk but still plenty of space to walk between NYNY and MC. I didn't find any of the construction disruptive during my visit.
