There are lots of people making their own versions of the LEGO Architecture city skylines. This is especially the case with a new contest on LEGO Rebrick. One hopeful builder, Felix (saabfan2013), could certainly be a top contender with his recreation of San Francisco.
In addition to the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Felix included several other important landmarks. They are the Palace of Fine Arts, Salesforce Tower, Coit Tower, and Transamerica Pyramid. He also built an adorable row of houses with a tiny trolley car.
A true labour of love is one that takes years to bear results. After half a decade of constantly building and updating using LEGO pieces accumulated from garage sales, Larry Wilkinson has brought to life an iconic and picturesque skyline of New York City. A few key buildings stand out, including the Freedom Tower, the Empire State Building, and The Chrysler Building — all instantly recognisable.
As a visitor who’s been to New York for less than a handful of times, this brings back memories of the faraway place that will always hold amazing and one of a kind experiences around a diverse culture of music, film, theatre, art – a melting pot city that makes it one of the greatest cities in the world, one that never sleeps.
