Lego Yankee Stadium

This is a scale model of Yankee Stadium built completely with Lego. Sean Kenney is a full-time "professional kid" who uses LEGO toys to build anything and everything you can imagine.

For years, his artwork, models, and children's books have inspired kids to create great things themselves.

Using over 45,000 LEGO bricks, a Manhattan gradeschooler and I have built a sculpture of Yankee Stadium over the past three years. It is 6 feet wide and 5 feet long, built to an approximate scale of 1:150.

Details

The building is built to look as it does to this day, including all of the modifications that were made over the history of the building (above).

The stadium is populated with over 1,700 little "microscale people". (Above)

The scoreboard is made using over 1,000 "light saber" rods, laid on top of each other so that only the round ends are showing.

Can you figure out what all the scoreboard ads are for?

An elevated train line runs alongside the stadium. It has a microscale New York City subway train and lots of traffic and crowds on the street below.

Working on the stadium

For three years, a Manhattan grade schooler and I built the stadium together. We began work in February 2006, working every weekend until it was complete in July 2009. The pictures below were taken during the course of 2006, 2007, and 2008.
