Wide View showing the layout of the Stardust. Refer to the top of the page for a detailed description about the layout.
The Stardust's Earth globe was placed in two different areas during the hotel's first 7 years. It is seen here set at the edge of the building, where the building slanted 45 degrees from the Strip. See image above. In 1965 it was mounted to the roof and set on a pedestal.
This view shows how Stardust's Earth globe was first set into the corner edge of the facade at the point where it angled 45 degrees, from the Strip, towards its 2 story, front room wing. This slanted face attracted the eye of north-bound travelers on the LA Highway.
