Lego Architecture 21007 - Rockefeller Center
Set 21007 is modeled after New York City's Rockefeller Center. It consists of 240 pieces, is rated Age 10+, and took me 40 minutes to build.
30 Rock (RCA Building/GE Building) and other highrises are now in place, to complete the set. I am rather pleased, considering that the Rockefeller Center is a place of a fair number of memories for me, including my first-ever meeting with a celebrity (Mariah Carey, 1994) that took just off of the right corner of this photo. And in my most New York City visit, in October 2011, I got some great photos of the night cityscape from Top of the Rock, an observation deck on the top three floors of 30 Rock.
For my first Lego Architecture sets, I decided on three New York City landmarks. With yet another trip to New York City about to start in a week, I wanted to get into a New York state of mind, just like the Billy Joel song.
