New York 4D Cityscape Puzzle
This puzzle recreates Manhattan's famous skyline not only in three dimensions using scale-model buildings, but also along the axis of a fourth dimension—time—spanning 101 years of architectural history.
The puzzle includes 120 plastic buildings that depict the city as it appeared from 1812 through to 1971 with the addition of the World Trade Towers, and into the future with the completion of One World Trade Center (Freedom Tower). Included icons are 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 575 pieces that form the city's street layout and islands. The streets glow in the dark, emphasizing the city's insomniac nickname, "The City That Never Sleeps." The puzzle also includes a time poster that directs you through the years as you rebuild New York's skyline history. An online educational feature shares more than 2,000 facts.
