And here is a brandnew update of my LegoNYC. Spring is there, the air is warm, the sun is shining and the trees and flowers are blooming ;) During the wintertime i added new buildings, streets and other details. LegoNYC is full of life now because everyone wants to be outside enjoying the sun and warm temperatures. I've tried my best to take many nice pictures, but my camera isn't the best. So excuse any blurry pictures. Hope that i get a better camera soon. Well, now enjoy and discover all the new details and little scenes. Have fun and thank you for stopping by.
About this creation
1.


2.


3. Walking the dogs in the park, enjoying the blooming flowers and trees :)


4. Carpenters and plumbers are working in and around the bar.


5. Engine 5 is en route to a call. Firemen blocking the traffic for the truck.


6. Road construction workers are busy with drinking coffee ;)


7. NYPD and another FDNY truck en route to a call.


8. Many people enjoy some hotdogs and drinks at the Sabretts stand


9. I call it "reflections" ;)


10.


11. And here is my brandnew deli/grocery store. It's based on the ground floor of the GE building but i modified it a lot. I added interior and exterior lighting with using a battery powered lighting string mounted inside of the roof and a Lifelites Kit. Due to all the wires inside of the building i decided against a real interior and added some selfprinted decals which show a "fake interior" if youre watching through the windows from outside. Tried my best to get a really good 3D effect ;) I hope you like it my friends.

14. Yes, i had to drill some holes into the Legos to get the lights into the right position.


15. Here you can see the backyard of the deli/grocery store.


Thank you very much for stopping by. Greetings, Sven

Hahaha, i didn't noticed your nice comment Oran. Sorry for that my very good friend. LOL, that fit's perfect to the back of the store. Litter Alley, following "don't take it literally". Sweet idea Oran :)

Hi Caleb my friend. Thank you so much for your very kind words and nice comment! That's so nice and made me smile :) I was in the same situation some years ago. Had not enough money for new parts etc... But i never gave up my dream of a big city with highrises, lots of cars and details everywhere. So never give up dreaming your dream and it might work for you sometime. I wish you all the best for it my friend. And yes, i'll always do my best showing you new city stuff. This weekend i'll get new parts for my Trump World Tower ;) Many thanks again!

I have always dreamed of having a huge lego city with lots of cars and details. You have made it a reality for your self! I am glad someone in the universe follows their dreams for once. Most people just give it a go and find it a little hard and move on. Brave guy you are. Nice job!

Hi mein lieber Oliver, ich weiss garnicht was ich sagen soll. Bin leicht geplättet (Im positiven Sinne) von deinem lieben Kommentar. Ich freue mich wirklich sehr darüber und auch das dir der Ausflug in mein schönes LegoNYC so gut gefallen hat. Du wirst immer wieder neue Möglichkeiten für einen erneuten Ausflug bekommen, denn ich arbeite ständig an Neuerungen und gehe mit den Jahreszeiten. Das heißt, es schneit auch mal im Winter, oder die Bäume werden zum Herbst kahl. Natürlich dürfen auch Weihnachtsdekorationen nicht fehlen wenns wieder soweit ist. Ich finde es schön das dir all diese kleinen Details so gefallen. Denn gerade die sind für mich so unheimlich wichtig und machen die meiste Arbeit aus. Habe schon oft wieder was entfernt weil ich wieder nen Weg gefunden hab es noch schöner hinzubekommen. Ich bin selber auch immer wieder jeden Tag aufs neue begeistert wenn ich die Stadt sehe. Hihi, ich würd ja gern endgültig rübermachen aber das ist bisher noch nicht geplant. Aber für nächstes Jahr ist sowohl ein Besuch bei Oran als auch ein Besuch von NY geplant. Ich danke dir von ganzem Herzen für diesen wirklich schönen Kommentar und wünsche dir weiterhin viel Spaß hier. Natürlich auch herzliche Grüße an dich zurück mein Freund :) Sven Ps: meine Legosammlung ist noch klein. Bekam heute einen Link zugesendet wo einer bei Ebay seine Sammlung im Wert von über 50.000 Euro verkaufen wollte. Das ist echt übel. ;)

Das ist wirklich außerordentlich in vielerlei Hinsicht: groß (BIG Apple, klar), lebendig und bei aller technischen Raffinesse wahnsinnig liebevoll gestaltet! Man merkt Deine große Liebe und Affinität zu NY in jedem Detail! Falls Du Dich (was nach meiner Besichtigung hier so ausschaut) wirklich einmal endgültig über den großen Teich machen wolltest, brauchst Du wohl aber einen Extra- Container für Deine Steine, gute Güte...!!! Herzliche Grüsse mein Freund Sven, das war ein wundervoller(wenn auch etwas später...)Ausflug hier... :)

LOL, yeah was not my favorite part drilling the holes. But it was necessary... The parts can still used on other creations because they are not destroyed. So it's no problem. But i know how you felt. Thank you very much for your nice comment my friend, i'm glad you still like all the details :)

This looks great! Lots of awesome details and scenes to study. I like the street sales stand, that alley view with the cat and your new deli. It looks really nice, but i must admit my eyes watered a bit when i read you had to drill holes. I know it was to mount the lights and they do look great, but... Holes? In lego parts? Oh no! :-D Still, overall a really beautiful scene :-)

Ach so schnell bin ich garnicht ;) Hab den ganzen Winter über an der Stadt gebaut. Musste nur noch ein bisschen ausschmücken und Bilder machen. Nur die beiden Ford Explorer sind direkt neu entworfen und gebaut. Lief einfach supergut und flüssig mit dem Entwickeln :) Manchmal beisse ich mich auch fest und komme nicht voran. Diesmal wars gut. Und weil die Stadt nun auch endlich fertig war hab ich auch gleich das Update hochgeladen ;) Liebe Grüße an dich und deine Family.

Thank you very much for your cool comment Matthias. Yeah i know about the M5 and that some details are different to the original street layout etc. It's not an exact copy it's only based of NYC to get the feeling of it. The M5 would never drive on the 1st Ave ;) But i'm happy about that you still like it all. Lol, the interior is based on a real NYC grocery store. Was searching for pictures of NYC grocery store interiors a looooong time and i'm glad that i found some ;) The advertising board design and lettering is my own thought out design.

Wow, this is ridiculously good. I really love the hotdog stand with all the realistic Sabrett branding. Spring is really setting in in NYC. Also, having the M3 driving on a two-way road isn't 100% accurate (pretty sure 5th av and Madison are one way ;)), but that doesn't deter from the amazingness of your build. Also, the deli & grocery "interior" reminded me of Pyongyang shops in 'The Interview'. If you haven't watched it, don't. It's quite bad

Well my friend, you did it again. You amazed me with a new technique to bring detail and excitement to your city. The 3D effect is priceless when coupled to the lighting. You lose nothing by not having a full interior. This brings a level of richness to your city by having many building techniques and styles in your design. I really loved the cat digging through the trash dump in the back.100/100 Bravo and well done on another LEGO masterpiece. Greets to you and Julia from me and Jill in NC.
