Urban Landscape #2 - 2011
My full layout - as complete as it is going to get. I am very happy with the industrial feel i have been able to attain in this latest layout. Some vehicles inspired/copied from other builders - but, most are mine.

Quoting N FR Jonathan this is an amazing set up you have/had created. I especially like the fire houses. Anymore up close photos?. Just love the detail. Great work.
Thank you! These are the only shots I have of this project. It has since been dismantled.

Quoting Search Function Too much too watch in 10 minutes. Will have to return to this later. Sooo many details. This must have cost and taken a lot. How many bricks is this in all?
Thanks. Not sure on the number of bricks. upwards of 300,000, I believe. I came up with a reasonably accurate number awhile ago, but I forget at this point.

It is insane how amazing this is. It's so clean, but at the same time it gives the sense of a dirty, cluttered industrial district of a city.

I don't suppose you have anymore images of the passenger train shown on some of the elevated tracks? It looks perfect from a distance, just like Chicago's L cars. I would love to see some of the details.
  January 28, 2012
The sense of realism here is so strong and refreshing. So much of the modular sets and set-ups are based on what some wish the world was like and there's nothing wrong with that. This MOC is incredibly detailed and you are talented.

Quoting Justin Fisk Is this set up in your living room or dinning room? This looks like a huge city, it looks great. Hopefully you don't have to take this apart.
Thanks. This was set up in my Lego Room. It was dismantled in July.

Quoting Shawn Rivers I only have one question: Why is the tattoo shop so HUGE? They must have a pretty big business! There are so many things I could say about this creation...keep up the fantastic work!
thanks. the tattoo shop was based on a building in Jackson, MS. The actual building is much larger - but, it is a multi-use building. The building contains more than just a tattoo shop.

Words (almost) fail me...this creation is the crown jewel of all city creations. The variety of textures and vehicles is stunning! I envy your ginourmous (Yes, I know that's not a word!) collection of parts. From the "carpet" store to the diner to the fantastic detailing on the roofs of the buildings, this is truly a LEGO work of art. The clever use of parts throughout the MOC are so plentiful that one can't help but take them for granted. I love the way you made the town seem to 'Come to life', using weathered looks on some buildings and sleek looks on others. I only have one question: Why is the tattoo shop so HUGE? They must have a pretty big business! There are so many things I could say about this creation...keep up the fantastic work!

I would go through alot to have you teach me a little. GREAT WORK!! (By the way, in case I do, my YouTube account is EagleSpirit88)

Quoting sid l WOW !!! its time NYC has a Lego museum something like the world expo of the past, this time around with user generated Lego cityscapes and I would nominate your works for Brooklyn. Bravo !! what was your build time ? are you going to build more or preserve this? Thanks for sharing
Thanks. Build time? Not sure. It has been in the works for a couple of years. I'll be having an open studio event in May and then disassembling this shortly there after.

Wow Jonathan! You have set yet another benchmark in LEGO layouts. My favorite photo is the 4th down... the lighting is perfect, muted, so realistic and the Pick-A-Brick cups in the background look like buildings off in the distance. I dare say this is the most realistic integration of LEGO Train and Town I've ever seen with all of the elevated train tracks, overpasses, etc... It's so gritty I need a shower after viewing! :D

I just can´t get enough of this. I can´t stop looking at it. Every time I go and check MOCpages, I am trapped in your wonderful atmosphere of urban decay. And it is exactly this decay that makes your layout so astonishing, so outstanding and different from all the "high-noon", clean and fairytale Lego layouts of many other builders. To me, your work is among the most inspiring ones to be found in the entire web. Regards, Steffen
