Iconic New York-New York marquee heading to Neon Museum

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Jan 6, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- An iconic marquee outside the New York-New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas is coming down.

Crews will remove the sign, which has been in place since 1997, on Tuesday morning.

It will then be retired to the Neon Museum.

Crews will remove the 30-foot sign and canopy to make way for construction of an all-new exterior facade at the resort.

A crane will then be used to disassemble the signage into three sections and transfer it to the Neon Museum.
