Lego Architecture – New York City – Video

Lego Architecture New York City Unboxing Video

We love to keep our hands busy and we don’t just mean by playing video games, we love Lego too! You’re never too old for Lego fun and if you’re a child at heart we highly recommend you check out the Lego Architecture collection. This is our second purchase, the first being the Seattle Space Needle. This time, we couldn’t resist the New York City set as it comes with five builds rather than just one.

Check out the build video and see some of New York’s most famous landmarks come together in front of your eyes.

In the kit you get everything you need to build:

  • One World Trade Center – Competed in 2013, standing 1,776ft tall, a direct reference to the year when the Declaration of Independence was signed.
  • The Statue of Liberty – A gift from France, designed by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi. The Stature of Liberty stands 151 ft tall.
  • Flatiron Building – The Flatiron Building is a memorable structure in New York that sits on the intersection where Fifth Avenue crosses Broadway. The value of this building is $190 million!
  • Chrysler Building – The 1,046 ft tall Chrysler Building was once the tallest building in the world before The Empire State Building stole the crown just 11 months later.
  • Empire State Building – Standing 1,454 ft this skyscraper is the 4th tallest building in the U.S.A and it’s the 25th tallest in the world.  The building was opened by President Herbert Hoover in 1931.

We picked up the kit from a local toy shop in Worcester for £40, but it’s also available from the Lego store, Amazon and loads from loads of other toy retailers. The Architecture range is for ages 12 and up and it’s more of a celebration for some of the magnificent buildings you can find around the world. This is grown up Lego (although we happen to think ALL Lego can also be classed as grown up), so if you love to build, create and learn more about architecture we recommend you check out this excellent range.

    That’s pretty impressive! There’s a lot of detail in those buildings. A set like this would be great for collectors.

    As someone who rather played with Lego than Barbie as a child, I am wondering if it’s acceptable if I go and buy some Lego as an almost 26 year old? Lego is just so awesome.

    Well G is 28 so I think you’re safe. It’s better for the brain than just sitting down to watch TV and the Lego Architecture is aimed at adults, so I’d say Yes, totally acceptable 😀

    This looks like a super amazing set is it acceptable for a 21 year old to buy it for themselves? ;D

    Awww fab, my hands are like shovels so I would not be able to do this. I have 3 cats too so that wouldn’t help. I watched the programme with the man who does Lego art for a living. It’s absolutely amazing and such a talent. Thank you do sharing xx

    I think this would be a great set to do. Although I can imagine I’d get impatient if it took me too long!

    This looks lots of fun, I would have to keep it out of sight from my little one as every time I build something with his lego he destroys it within a minute x
