The infamous Block 16 from 1900s to 1940s was located in the northern section of the city of Las Vegas, now also known as Downtown. It was the only section where drinking, gambling and prostitution were legal till the end of World War II. The brothels operated until 1942, which were converted into sleazy rooming joints until 1946, when the entire area was demarcated as dangerous and demolished by the local government. Parking lots came up in the empty space and is also the location of Binion's Gambling Hall & Hotel.
