Universal Studios has unveiled the restored New York streetback-lot location that burned down in a fire in June 2008. The lot, which consists of 13 city blocks of buildings, has been a tourist attraction and frequent location for commercials and films from The Sting to Blues Brothers.

The Peter Jackson-created 360 3D King Kong attraction, replacing the original which also burned down, will open this summer.
