Put on your party hats, NYC! The Brooklyn Bridge is turning 135, and LEGOLand Discovery Center Westchester is throwing quite the bash to celebrate this occasion. 

On July 17, visitors making their way in and out of Grand Central Terminal are invited to help build a scaled replica bridge. What better way to spice up your commute with an interactive LEGO extravaganza? Visitors can make their way to Vanderbilt Hall East from 9am–5pm to participate in the brick-building there will be a few chances to win cool prizes, too!

“It’s an honor to celebrate the spirit of imagination by sharing the LEGO build experience with New Yorkers of all ages and capturing an iconic symbol of human innovation,” Chris Mines, the general manager of LEGOLand Discovery Center Westchester, said in a statement. 

Aspiring engineers will enjoy this opportunity, knowing that the event is in honor of the first steel and wire suspension bridge. Though the size will be a lot smaller (the LEGO bridge will estimate roughly 4-feet wide, 320 pounds in weight and feature over 62,000 various shapes and colors), it's certainly a fun undertaking while waiting for the train home.
