CONSERVANCY LAUNCHES 20TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR WITH LEGO BUILDING PROJECT
2018 this event has passed
The young builders chose what they wanted to create from photos of 57 private homes and public structures. Many of the buildings were historic, and some no longer standing. Selections included Old Village Hall, The Reformed Church, “Crownlands,” Concordia College, 26 Prescott Avenue, and 11 Sturgis Road, “the Chateau.”
After the finished LEGO models were sufficiently admired and photographed, they were disassembled and the bricks returned to bins. But participants did not leave empty-handed. They received a “guide,” which included a map of Bronxville and the history of the 57 selected structures. Everyone was encouraged to take a walking tour of Bronxville and visit the real buildings in their natural habitat.
