Good news for Lego fans big and small! While visiting New York you will not have to head to the crowded tourist region of the Rock in order to get your Lego fix! The newest Lego store is now located at 200 5th ave. between 23rd and 24th streets and is the first store to ever have the Lego Lounge with comfortable seating and charging stations for tired parents as well as Lego books, Lego carpet, and even Duplo Legos in a preschool play area. The LEGO Store Flatiron District will host its grand opening on Columbus Day weekend, with festivities kicking off on Friday from 4-6 p.m. As part of the celebration, LEGO Master Builders will be hosting events in nearby Madison Square Park (One of my favorite NYC parks) throughout the holiday weekend, and everyone is invited to help. (All participants will receive a “Certificate of Achievement” for taking part.) They are having some amazing Grand Opening events!
