Stardust Is Now Just Dust and Memories

Hosted by

In 1958, the Stardust opened in Las Vegas, becoming the world's largest resort hotel with 1,032 rooms. But the first mass-market casino is a thing of the past. Today, the Stardust was imploded by the Boyd Gaming Corporation to make way for the Echelon, which will cost $4.4 billion and have 5000 rooms. Mike Weatherford, entertainment reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, is editor of The Stardust of Yesterday: Reflections on a Las Vegas Legend.
