MGM: 9/11 display to be moved to accommodate construction

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

It's become a fixture on the Las Vegas Strip since the 9/11 terror attacks, but there is fear that construction could mean the end of the 9/11 display in front of the New York-New York casino.

The display, which features a rotating collection of fire responder T-shirts with handwritten notes, has been available for viewing since shortly after 9/11.

FOX5 received a statement from MGM Resorts International ensuring people that the display will simply be moved rather than eliminated.

MGM is in the process of reconstructing the facade of New York-New York. MGM spokesperson Yvette Monet said while the display will be moved, it has not yet been determined to where.

Monet said the display has always elicited strong emotional response and that the company is working with local first responders and others for input as to where it should go.

MGM said either its public relations team or local responders will notify the public when a new location is agreed upon.
