Weekend Excursion

After studio on Friday, I took a trip over to Downtown 3rd St. to get a sense of the blocks nightlife. The block was not as busy as I expected it to be on a Friday night and the area that was not occupied by people during the day was the same at night. I thought people avoided that area during the day because of the sun, but then figured that was not the cause. When I took a closer look, I found that the windows were tinted dark so that you could not see inside and the doors were all locked. The other side of the street around Pizza Rock was more lively and had a more inviting atmosphere.

The next night I visited The Linq for the first time and got see the scale of it. I started analyzing the spaces from Las Vegas Blvd and worked my way towards the High Roller at the end. The verticality of the businesses created an atmosphere that seem to have taken me away from “the strip” but did not quite have that “old Las Vegas” feeling that they had shown on the flags around The Linq.
