LEGOizing NY

Almost a year ago, I wrote a post about my favorite building in midtown, this chopped-in-half brownstone at 19 W 46th Street.

The other day, I got a note that a Lego fan had built a Lego version of the building based on my pictures!

Great job! Most of the time, a building this quirky would be the imaginative creation of a Lego designer. I love that this is a rare instance in which it’s real.

Even got the old Radio City Deli sign in there, a deli that has been gone since the 80’s.

And of course, the roof:

Awesome work. Check out more pictures and the CAD file over here.

    This is my new favorite site. I could look at pictures of buildings, street scenes and skylines all day!
