Although it may not be as famous as the “Love” sculpture down the street, the “Curved Cube” by American sculptor William Crovello has been a solid presence outside the Time-Life Building on 6th Avenue for the past 38 years. Back on January 20, 1972, the “Association for a Better New York” donated this three-dimensional sculpture to the city, along with five other sculptures that were placed around the city.
Instead of swimming and hanging out by the pools as we had originally hoped, we spent the first day of our mini vacation at Downtown Disney because it was a tad too cold to do anything else. Outfitted with our hats and gloves, we strolled around the shops in Downtown Disney until my husband found one of his favorite stores – the Lego store. It’s amazing to see all these human size figurines and structures made out of just legos. This first photo is a picture of the a la carte lego wall. I love the colors on this wall! The second photo is a close up of the Lego Wall, and the third photo is the wall behind the cashiers – it showcases all the little lego figurines, thought it looked pretty cool.
