Lego block

elm street lego blockA computer scientist named William Leue has built a very cool model of row houses on Elm Street in Albany -- out of Legos LEGO.

There are more -- and bigger -- pictures posted at the site linked above. In a comment there, he says it took him a few months to build the scene.

I must say, that is pretty awesome!

The plural of LEGO is LEGO blocks! Never "legos"

I've always said "legos"....

That is amazing! I've been wanting to buy some of LEGO's more urban sets for a while know but Mr. Leue has totally blown those away. Good job!


Bill has done a fascinating and great job. I can see this circulating nationally around historic preservation circles. Has anyone sent it to the Old House Journal yet?

I forwarded this to a friend in California who used to live on that block of Elm Street. Below is what she said, "can't believe it - amazing - THANKS FOR SENDING - this was darling!"

Great work Bill!

I think part of the outrage is a manifestation of the guilt felt by the crowd that refuses to recognize any part of Troy that isn't glossy, groomed, or hipsterfied or threatens that image. I love Troy. I've invested in Troy. But I'm not blind that there is a caste system in Troy. ...
