The First Alley Revitilization Project
In Las Vegas
dT-alley is a “T”-shaped alley that creates new experiences.
Located between Fremont/CarsonandLVB/6th Street this community space incorporates art and interactivity for locals and visitors through the use of Murals, Sculptures, innovative landscaping, and multiple interactive “moments”.
All of which provide a beautiful space in an otherwise under-utilized area.
Benefits to Community
Enhanced Downtown connectivity and walkability
Added pedestrian space
Addresses shortage of public/park space in Downtown Las Vegas
Add to the aesthetic and whimsy of the neighborhood
Increased perceived comfort and safety
What is a Moment?
A Unique Interactive Experience
These “Moments”, protected by bollards, provide interaction within dT-alley.
Listen/Play to the community piano, use the take/leave alley library, use the puppet theatre or confess you sins in the confessional. These are just a few “Moments” to be experienced here. During the off hours these can all be safely secured until the next day.
Take some time and tickle the ivory as onlookers and friends listen to you play the piano. Or take a spectators role and experience the sounds of the community piano.
This take or leave community library can be participated by both locals and tourists of all ages.
Pass The Popcorn
A puppet theatre creates fun and entertainment for all ages. This will be supported by local entertainers as well as kids from 9th Street Bridge, The Las Vegas Academy and others.
What’d you say?
Everybody has something to confess…so why not do it here! Your own Alleyt confessional booth. Sit across from a friend, stranger, roaming Priest or whomever and share your innermost secret. Phase 2 will allow you to record your confession by video and post it wherever you want…or don’t want. We can only imagine the type of confessions from dT-Alley at 3am

Life Cube Project
We are so proud to Honor the Life Cube Project by installing a permanent Mailbox “Moment” that will collect Wish Cards that can be picked up at Most Fremont East Bars & Restaurants when you pay your bill should you choose to dine & drink Downtown. You can also print them and come drop your wishes off. We will burn them each year at our Annual BBQ Dinner in the Alley.
