Block 16
Block 16 soon evolved into the town’s red-light district. Bordered by Stewart on the north end, Ogden to the south, First to the west, and Second to the east, Block 16 offered locals and weary railroad travelers a variety of recreational opportunities such as billiards and bowling.

Downtown: Container Park
Places to visit downtown – it’s a shopping/restaurant complex built from shipping containers. It may not sound like much, but it’s the first successful renovation/reclamation in the downtown. Compare the mood here to Fremont Street Experience. If you want to be jarred and delighted, Fremont is electric fun. If you want to slow down in a family-friendly environment, this is the place. On Facebook as Downtown Container Park – https://www.facebook.com/DowntownContainerPark

Questions
Are there walking tours in Downtown Las Vegas? = ยฟHay caminatas en el centro de Las Vegas?
Where can I rent a bicycle?

#DTLV Request: Friends are visiting. What’s your favorite walking itinerary including Container Park and El Cortez? Where to visit? Who to visit? Suggestions welcome! Also, for future reference, where could we go if we had bikes?

El Cortez
The El Cortez on East Fremont Street opened in 1941. It is the longest continuously running hotel and casino in the city and features the same facade it had in 1952. In February of 2013, the structure was placed on the National Register of Historic Places making it the only casino on the list.

The new Las Vegas High School at 7th & Bridger, built at a cost of $350,000 and the only Art Deco style building in Las Vegas, opened in the fall of 1930 and was dedicated on November 2. That year the Honor Club was formed, the Desert Breeze newspaper was started, and Frank Butcher, Head of Athletics, died in a gasoline fire at the age of 26. In 1931, Butcher Field was named in his honor and the Boulder Echo was dedicated to him. In 1932, 15 issues of the Desert Breeze were published, and there were 75 graduates. The Great Depression swept across the country and the unemployed converged on Las Vegashoping for jobs on the Boulder Dam project. In 1933, Boulder City became a reality and 165 high school students were bused to Las Vegas. LVHS enrollment jumped to 473 students and the โ€œWildcatโ€ mascot was born. There were 100 graduates in 1934, and the Desert Breeze was expanded to two pages. That same year, the original Las Vegas High School, which had become part of the Las Vegas Grammar School, burned down. In 1935 there were 775 students enrolled (in the school built for 500), and in 1936 there were 69 graduates. In 1937, there were 91 graduates and Bill Nellis graduated (he was shot down over Luxembourg 4 years later and was memorialized by the naming of Nellis Air Force Base).
