Explore the architecture and history of New York City through the medium of LEGO. Expert builder Jonathan Lopes presents his own remarkable re-creations of such landmarks as the Flatiron Building, Manhattan Bridge, Washington Square Arch, and High Line Park, along with more everyday places like Junior's Diner, a brownstone apartment, and Rescue Co. 3 fire station in the Bronx. Some pieces are quite impressive—the Brooklyn Bridge is over 16 feet long, while the Woolworth Building dwarfs its creator—and Lopes offers mini-tutorials on building particular features for yourself. The book includes a folded poster over three feet long, with Grand Central Terminal on one side and the Chrysler Building on the other.
