New York Just Got a Little Less Scruffy





Artist Jan Vormann recently visited New York and decided to fix up the place. He and his crew of random kids and passersby filled the city's cracks, crevasses, and assorted holes with Legos. (See more pics here.

Thanks, Jan. You're welcome back any time.

Awesome. Kids who play with Legos are smarter when they're older than those who don't. And kids who play with Legos when they're older are awesome.

P.S. I might be wrong, but the books are East by Edith Pattou and the one that's a copy cat Ice by Sarah Beth Durst if any of you want to check there you go.
