Just like sister casino Luxor, the theme-gone-mad here has been scaled way back, removing a lot of the wacky details that made this place fun. The Central Park effect has been replaced by smooth, modern lines (blech), generic styling, and an overall sense of "classy" that, while admittedly pretty, is certainly not as entertaining. Having said that, you can still get your game on here with a full array of slots, tables, sports betting, and more; and, if you feel the need to immerse yourself in the faux-Gotham glory, you can wander into the adjacent Greenwich Village shops and restaurant areas for a breather.
