Pixelated New York City

I have been neglecting this blog and my news blog for the past three months, but I will try my best to be more diligent in my blogging since I have an audience now (Hi Cynthia! It's just you I am referring to, by the way.)

Anyway, these Lego depictions of New York City showed up on the Gothamist, and they made me so happy that I just need to share them. These are all done by Christoph Niemann, who is an artist who has previously designed covers for the New Yorker and The New York Times Magazine. He is also the author of a fun Chinese children's book, The Pet Dragon, that teaches Chinese characters to children.

I used to work near this street, so the above image is quite accurate.

The waitress in me smiles at this.

Honestly, any person who tries to make learning Chinese easier for children is good in my book.
