Historic Neighborhoods In Las Vegas Feature Many Mid Century Modern Homes – And Unique Architectural Concrete Block Designs
One way to find out you’ve left “Vintage Vegas” is the decorative concrete block sunscreens, and fence patterns start to disappear. Except for the “Double X” and the “Double Y” (which are still used as the top row of blocks in the “cinderblock canyons” of the suburbs), you won’t find many neighborhoods built after 1970 where the patterns we’ve been showcasing are used at all. 1970 is generally considered the end of the Mid Century Modern era of architecture.
