Report from the Front: LEGO Rockefeller Center

Lucky wide-eyed tourists and even jaded New Yorkers stopped in their tracks to watch workers on the night shift finish flourishes to the flagship Fifth Avenue store. Pop-art colors, mosaics, a giant green dinosaur and Big Apple special edition LEGO re-creations reflecting the famous sculptures surrounding Rockefeller Center and the ice skating rink will be a must see for Lego purists. Also, all fun seekers from 8-80 -- even for fashionistas headed straight for Saks Fifth Avenue -- may be tempted to help LEGO build the biggest apple in the Big Apple (a giant 15 footer)!

The times when the public can help build the 15 foot Big Apple model:
  • Tuesday, June 29: 8:00am - 6:00pm
  • Wednesday, June 30: 8:00am - 6:00pm
  • Thursday, July 1: 8:00am - 3:00pm

 A store so new, you can still smell the paint fumes!
