If there is a quiet space, they will pipe in music to fill it. Where the pipes don’t reach, the street performers swarm, busking for dollars (or $5.00 if you want to take your picture with them).

The people are dressed to the nines, barely dressed at all (sometimes both at once), slovenly and uncouth, or just tidy and unremarkable, and all intermixed at once. You cannot drive anywhere, but then people don’t drive except to show off their rides, so you walk and walk up and down the bright streets, over the elevated walkways, and through the gaming floors with their miasma of smoke and hammering noise.
