Jonathan Lopes has been building, over the course of the last four years, his Brooklyn neighbourhood, entirely out of LEGOs. According to this article in the New York Daily News:
He reconnected with his childhood passion about 10 years ago when the brand started making models based on the "Star Wars" movies. Several kits later, he began to design his own creations, building a city street sweeper.
Lopes has spent almost four years putting together a train scene that takes up nearly all of his 400 square-foot living room.
"I want it to look like what I see every day when I walk to the subway," Lopes said.
You can also see a very extensive gallery here, showcasing the amount of detailing that he has put into every square inch of his re-creation. I love the NY subway models.
