Legoland Westchester unveils a replica of One World Trade Center

The new kid-centric institution has added a model of One World Trade Center to its collection of NYC landmarks built with Legos.

One of the many supercool features of the Legoland Discovery Center in Westchester is Miniland, an exhibit featuring plastic-brick replicas of landmarks in New York like Times Square, the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty. Now, the center’s master builders have made a notable addition to their Lego version of the New York City skyline—One World Trade Center. The 12-foot-tall, 100-pound model was constructed from almost 5,000 Lego bricks and took over 260 hours to create. Legoland worked with the Port Authority of World Trade Center Construction to accurately replicate the architectural features of One WTC, including its newly installed spire. Check out our photos of the amazing model, above, to see it for yourself and then scroll through our slide show, below, of all of the wonders in Miniland.
