LEGO® Architecture Flatiron Building Set Now Available! + Giveaway

Just seven months after opening its flagship store across the street from the Flatiron Building, The LEGO Group has released a miniature version of their new neighbor. The LEGO® model of the Flatiron Building stands six inches tall and replicates the graceful curves and Beaux-Arts façade of the iconic skyscraper. 

First announced last October, the kit can now be purchased in store at 200 Fifth Avenue or online. At 471 pieces, the set presents a fun challenge to builders of all ages, and is accompanied by a booklet that contains notes about the history of the building, originally constructed in 1902. It is the latest addition to the LEGO® Architecture series, which includes other New York City landmarks such as the Empire State Building and the Rockefeller Center.
