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!

My boyfriend put up a whiteboard in our shower (thinking he could get his ideas down while in the shower)- however the steam allows about 20 seconds of writing time- so now its more of a love note board- I love pulling back the shower curtain and seeing a cute drawing and note!
