I always love weird stories. Recently the US postal service had to pay the sculpture of the Las Vegas Statue of Liberty 3.5 million dollars in damages because they used the image on a forever stamp in 2010. That all being said, until I read the story I didn't realize that the Vegas statue was not an exact replica of the one found on Liberty Island outside of NYC. As a native New Yorker I always assumed that the Vegas one was just a scaled down model. Needless to say, New York New York in Vegas is worth stopping into to check out a few of the sights - especially the roller coaster. We felt the $17 price tag was well worth the experience.
