Here’s an amazing artist on the New York Times blog, making abstract representations of NYC with few simple LEGO blocks:

A lot of the stuff is not really NYC specific, but some jokes are probably hard to get if you don’t live in the city.

The guy apparently has tons of good humor, but nothing cracks me up as much as the “worst building” below.  Why?  Because I know exactly what he’s talking about and can’t agree more!

I think the Grace Plaza is a pretty ugly building in NYC but it doesn’t suck nearly as much as the silly white one by the Brooklyn Bridge (1 Brooklyn Bridge Plaza with the Verizon logo).

    I think anyone taking a picture of the Brooklyn Bridge from the Brooklyn side, or of Manhattan from the bridge, and find this huge white rectangle sticking out in the picture with a silly red Verizon logo on it, would be pretty upset.
