We hear from the Real Deal (via reader and local agent Adie) that the new LEGO flagship store at 200 5th Avenue right across from Madison Square Park will open in mid-July. It’s the corner space previously held by Fidelity (next to Marimekko and Eataly). Bringing one of the greatest toy companies ever to the neighborhood is an awesome addition (fittingly in what was once called the Toy Building). LEGO is one of the most timeless and creative toys in existence. Kids get ready!
And now that they will be in the neighborhood, maybe they can make a Flatiron Building LEGO set, just like they have the LEGO Empire State Building.
