The Las Vegas metropolitan area, also known as the Las Vegas-Paradise-Henderson Metropolitan Statistical Area, is a metropolitan area in the southern part of the U.S. state of Nevada, consisting of Clark County. A central part of the metropolitan area is the Las Vegas Valley, a 600 sq mi (1,600 km2) basin in which is located the metropolitan area's largest city, Las Vegas. The area contains the largest concentration of people in the state. The history of the Las Vegas metropolitan area largely coincides with the history of the city of Las Vegas, whose name is sometimes used to denominate the entire region. The metropolitan area's population was at 852,646 in 1990 However, the population has nearly tripled to 2,282,708 in 2010 (estimated). Under the gliss and glam of casino’s and hotels in Las Vegas lies a dark and sad place; a 200 miles long flood tunnel that is occupied by homeless, drug addicts and criminals. About 1000 of them are living there, can you imagine? A lot of them have made rooms in the tunnel with furniture and their belongings to make it more homely.They have no choice but to live with the risks from disease, creepy insects and rats, and the dirty water around them, not the mention the lack of daylight. Many of them live by begging in the streets and raiding bins and ships, but some of them still have decent jobs at the hotels. What a contrast to the things that are happening above the surface. Speaking of Las Vegas here is a Lego replica of it.
