"This small replica for the Liberty Square shopping plaza has been a Las Vegas landmark for more than twenty years. At the base of the Statue of Liberty is a shaved ice stand. This older statue has been overshadowed in recent years by the New York New York's taller and newer version. Although themed architecture is certainly not new to the city, seldom is this kind of iconography seen in the average strip mall. A more famous example of architecture acting as sculptural/iconographic marker is the Tail-o'-the Pup, a popular hotdog stand in Los Angeles."
