At New York - New York , the ambience of the Big Apple meets the busiest intersection of the Las Vegas Strip. Every single detail of New York - New York harkens back to NYC, starting with the famous skyline.

On Nov. 28, the Bellagio Hotel and Casino - also an MGM Resorts International property - was robbed by a man who took an undisclosed amount of cash from a cash cage in the poker room.

That robbery happened while actor James Woods was playing poker and the actor praised the staff's response in the midst of the crime.

"So we are playing poker at the @BellagioPoker and a guy walks up with a gun and robs the cage thirty feet from us ten minutes ago," Woods tweeted. "Bellagio staff were fantastic. They surrendered the money quietly, so no customers would get hurt. Nobody even realized it was happening. Excellent staff, cool under pressure."

That suspect escaped in a Chevy Cruze with Nevada plates. He has yet to be caught.

Few robberies have been as large and as dramatic, however, as the 2010 incident at the Bellagio in which Anthony Carleo stole $1.5 million in chips from the craps pit. The so-called Biker Bandit fled on Flamingo Road on motorcycle, but was later caught and pleaded guilty.

After the New York, New York robbery, a casino spokesman issued a statement that said all operations were running normally in the wake of the theft. MGM officials would not disclose how much money was taken in the New York, New York robbery.
