Yesterday was the final game at Yankee Stadium, the House That Ruth Built. A new stadium is under construction right across the street. But until them, you can enjoy Sean Kenney’s massive model of Yankee Stadium made entirely of Lego bricks! There’s over 45,000 Lego elements in the 5+ foot square model which took three years to construct. You can buy poster prints of the stadium from Sean’s website, since he is a professional Lego artist. Let me repeat that in bold: a professional Lego artist. Yes he has the greatest job in the world.
