I features a weird shop in the ground floor and a whole flat on the upper levels. I tried to include a lot of details, there’s even an R2-D2 figure in the bedroom, because, honestly, can you think of a New Yorker who doesn’t own a Star Wars gimmick?
This model is loosely based on a house next to the Ghostbusters building »Hook and Ladder 8« at 11 N Moore St, New York, NY 10013. I just stumbled upon it while researching on another project and thought it had all the typical features of a NYC apartment building, including the fire escape staircase at the front.
The model is designed as a modular building, so it does not have the exact same proportions as it’s real-life inspiration, but I think four stories is already enough height for a lego set. I also used this opportunity to try some more advanced building techniques.
I’d only like to add that if this was to be made into an actual set, I’d probably adjust a few things here and there. I don’t want to go into detail because that would be really annoying but I find some things are not perfect yet.
Unfortunately, Cuusoo’s image embedding is not that perfect yet, so if you like to see more/HiRes images, try this.
