Why not move the Fremont Street Experience to a remote location in the desert where it can fulfill its destiny as modern concept art?

The old canopy idea is played out, and its removal would instantly restore one of the world’s great streetscapes by remarrying two timeless Vegas assets that are meant to be together: neon and the night.
