#126: RAW:Vegas; What First Friday Should Be

September 28, 2011

When we first moved to Las Vegas, we were really excited about First Friday, the once-a-month art gathering in downtown Las Vegas. But after a few visits, it felt less about art and more about miserable-looking 20-somethings in skinny jeans and black eye-shadow. In this episode of Living in Las Vegas, we find an art event that First Friday should aspire to: RAW:Vegas. (We also introduce a brand new segment to the show! How cool is that?!?!) Show notes:

Like any large city, Las Vegas has its fair share of crime. But when it comes a little too close to home. . .well. . .that’s not a feature. In this episode of Living in Las Vegas, we talk about crime in Vegas, share a personal experience, and show you a website that can tell you exactly how much crime is in your neighborhood.

#105: People ARE Moving to Las Vegas!

April 27, 2011

When we first launched the show, our tagline was, “With 5,000 people moving here each month, somebody had to spill the beans.”

That was in 2006.

Until recently, we’ve seen a net loss in residents here in Clark County. But in this episode of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast, we hear from two viewers who are making the move to Las Vegas. YES! Show notes:

70: One is Good, One is Bad: Las Vegas Hiking, Las Vegas Real Estate Agents

August 29, 2009

[Let’s set the mood. . .it’s a Saturday night. . .the studio lights have been dimmed. . .the red wine is ready and willing. . .what better time to record a Living in Las Vegas Podcast?]

Professionalism?  Las Vegas Real Estate “Professionals” calling.  We’re a little lost, here.  Can you send somebody over?

Okay, this wasn’t meant to be the main topic. . .and it’s not. . .but, for the love of all things reasonable, get it together Las Vegas real estate folks!  You’re making those of us who live here look bad!

On a positive note, after ranting about the nasty issues of real estate, this edition of the Living in Las Vegas Podcast talks about three places to hike, two of which I deemed “hiked” even though my definition of hiked and Melissa’s were not completely in line.  Show notes:

As I was playing around with my iPod Touch, I stumbled upon Time Magazine’s iPod-based website.  The first article I found was a cover-piece about Las Vegas.  It was a very interesting article.  Here’s the link:

Article: http://www.time.com/time/nation/article/0,8599,1915962,00.html

Along with the article, there was an associated video that followed a local real estate agent to two foreclosed properties, one of which was in Newport Lofts [recent blog post].  You’ve got to see this video.  Half of the units are empty, according to the real estate agent.  It’s startling what somebody was able to do at one of the lofts (change the locks?!?!).  They sneak into house later in the video to see the shape it’s in.  Here’s the video link:

In Business Las Vegas reports in this week’s edition that Clark County’s population “dropped during the past year after decades as one of America’s fastest growing counties”.

So much for our tagline.

In the last year, the county lost about 10,000 people.  Most folks believe this is the first drop in population in nearly 40 years.

Here’s the data (according to the Clark County Comprehensive Planning Department):

 

2008 1,986,146
2007 1,996,542
2006 1,912,654
2005 1,815,700
2004 1,747,025
2003 1,641,529
2002 1,578,332
2001 1,498,279
2000 1,428,690
1999 1,321,312
1998 1,246,193
