Here’s a topographically accurate model of New York, made from LEGOs

Our buddies at The Daily What pointed out this topographically accurate map of New York, constructed not quite from actual LEGOs but from digital renderings of LEGOs that are accurate enough that you could actually recreate this down the LEGO block if you felt like it. (You could probably add in some extra green for a Sandy-accurate version).

Designer JR Schmidt created the rendering from pixel-accurate maps of New York’s elevation like the one below. Check out more cool stuff at his site.
