ILUGNY’s New York City Skyline at BrickFair VA

BrickFair Virginia was a great opportunity for ILUGNY to show off our “8x” NYC Skyline.  Watch our interview with Matt Kay of Beyond the Brick and then stick around to watch us assemble the skyline (for the third time).

We discovered when we set the skyline up initially that it was heavy enough to curve the table, and make the tops of the buildings noticeably closer.  So, this is the third attempt, with a giant (improvised) wooden base under the whole thing.
