A major redevelopment effort is underway at New York-New York and Monte Carlo that is transforming the area in front of and between those hotels into a new urban space with stores, restaurants, nightlife, a park, and more. It's all a part of a massive 63-acre project covering the unused space around the two hotels and include a 20,000-seat arena.
The front facades of New York-New York and Monte Carlo are be redone into an outdoor plaza experience featuring a series of casual bars, eateries, and retail outlets. New York-New York is modifying its skyline and Brooklyn Bridge to provide greater access to the additions, which includes the Hershey's Chocolate World flagship store, a two-story interactive attraction and retail outlet (which is now open). Additionally, the hotel's Irish pub, Nine Fine Irishmen, has been expanded with an outdoor patio and new restaurants are being adding including branches of the popular Shake Shack and Tom's Urban restuarants.
At Monte Carlo, the current formal European-style exterior features have be removed to make way for new partners, including Double Barrel, a casual roadhouse restaurant and bar concept; Sambalatte, a local coffee favorite; Yusho, a Japanese "street food" concept out of Chicago; and 800 Degrees Neapolitan Pizzeria, serving build-your-own personal pizzas prepared to each guest's liking and baked in around a minute in an 800-degree wood-burning oven. Mexican favorite Diablo's will be incorporated into the new design.
Between the two properties and leading back to the new arena will be a park environment featuring water features, dining areas, and performance spaces complemented by areas for quiet relaxation.
Construction is underway now, with it opening in stages between now and 2016.
