Man Plays With Legos, Recreates NYC In Most Charming Way Possible

Once a New Yorker, always a New Yorker. Isn't that an expression? If not, New York Times illustrator Christoph Niemann proves it should be when we stumbled upon one of his "Abstract Sunday" columns. Holed up with his kids in freezing Berlin (not unlike our wintry mix day), Niemann's Lego playing takes a subconscious Big Apple turn, resulting in the charming, wistful, and humorous "I LEGO N.Y." Check out our slideshow for our favorite NYC mise-en-scènes, or peep the whole body of work here.
