The Revival Of Naked City
The Revival Of Naked City

AIR DATE: March 6, 2013

The neighborhood that sits under the shadow of the Stratosphere is famously known as Naked City. Once a place where showgirls could be seen sunbathing nude, for the last few decades it's been a community of low-income housing and high crime, in spite of many efforts to clean up the streets. We'll talk to a few voices of this often ignored region.

Sherry Alexander, Recreational Leader, Las Vegas Stupak Community Center
Chris Chapel, Pastor, Casa De Luz, Naked City
Bob Coffin, Las Vegas City Council, Ward 3
