Empire Diner NYC "UPDATE"
NYC has it and LegoNYC needs it, a classic diner. I choosed the iconic Empire Diner in New York. The Lego model isn't a exact replica because it's a bit smaller and a belonging to building is missing but I think that I still put the charme of a classic diner into my Lego model. I hope you like it. The real one (located at 210 10th Avenue NYC) got a refurbishment and they removed the Empire State Building silhouette from the roof. But I decided to add the iconic silhouette. My will be added to LegoNYC on a existing free space (16x32 studs). But it's not much room for taking good pics from there. That's the reason why I took the pics of the building alone.

Hey Jonathan my friend, it's really an honor getting such a nice comment from you! Thank you very very much :) I'm very happy about that you love it so much. I'll stop by there when I'm on my next trip to NYC (which is now partly my home because I made friends with some really awesome people and have all time access to a apartment in NYC for free) Only need to pay the flight tickets.

It's such a bummer that I wasn't at home while you were typing all the nice comments. I really missed your voice (okay your typing) here and I know that you have to work very hard at the moment. Something I'm not okay with because working so long without any freetime isn't good for almost anything. I'm glad that you're still alive my brother and we miss you and Jill a lot! Take care my good friend and stay healthy. Thank you very much for your very lovely words!

That's great to hear my friend. Thank you so much for your very kind comment. To bad I had no pic of the roof area itself. So most of the stuff-except the ESB is fictional. I saw that there is some stuff on the roof but had no clear view on how it looks like exactly.

Referring to an article the rooftop Empire State Building replica had gone missing in 2010. But no further information available why... The ED had many owner changes and for a short period the name was changed to "The Highliner" referring to the nearby Highline Park. Thank you so much for your very kind comment my friend!

Thank you so much my friend! Started with the brick lettering first and was the first time ever I did it XD Greets back to you and your family from me, Julia and my Family. Wish you all the same. Um, will take a picture later and add it here. But need better lighting and space XD

Very nice! This will make a great addition to your city. I too really like the lettering, but the shape of the building looks great too :-) About your explanation for my disappearing rating on TMNS's pencil and paper-build: I have never noticed it happen before, but a glitch in the system would certainly explain what happened. I was sure i gave it a higher rating than what showed up when i commented on it the first time.

very funny fact is that he came into mind very often while building the diner. But it's all selfmade without any help. Only looked up some pics of snot lettering. Thank you very much my friend!
