This 4D New York City Skyline Puzzle ($50) recreates Manhattan’s famous skyline not only in three dimensions using scale-model buildings, but also along the axis of time, spanning 101 years of its architectural history. The puzzle includes 113 plastic buildings that depict the city as it appeared as far back as 1812 through to 1973 with the addition of the World Trade Towers, and into the future in 2013 with the completion of Freedom Tower.
Including icons such as the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, and the United Nations, the buildings fit into pre-cut holes in a traditional 2D jigsaw puzzle composed of 640 pieces that form the city’s street layout and islands. The streets glow in the dark, emphasizing the city’s insomniac nickname. Includes a guide book that includes a history of the city.
The puzzle company also makes 4D cityscapes of Chicago, Hong Kong, Las Vegas, London, Paris, Toronto and Washington D.C. as seen HERE.
