When did “Old Vegas” become “New Vegas”?

By James P. Reza

The answer depends on one’s perspective. Some believe the lingering death of Old Vegas began when Howard Hughes, refusing demands to vacate a suite at the Desert Inn, instead purchased the resort in March 1967 and (supposedly) marked the beginning of the end of organized crime involvement in casinos. I don’t subscribe to that point of view; Hughes has been characterized as a more “legitimate” operator than Moe Dalitz, but was still quite the classic Vegas character, far removed from the suits and smiles overseeing the bottom-line pursuits of today’s corporate Vegas.
