Puzzle Fun

My husband and I were quite enamored with New York City during our last visit that we purchased a 4D puzzle of the city as a souvenir.

After several weeks of looking at the box sitting on the shelf at home, we opened it on Sunday and began the undaunting task of putting the 700 pieces together. My last jigsaw puzzle was probably over 30 years ago.

We laid the foundation of the streets, rivers, and then the buildings. Lo and behold, after working together for most of the day, here is the finished product.

You can click to enlarge the photo for an overhead view. We definitely relived our vacation while putting it together.

For more information on this type of puzzle, visit the 4D Cityscape website.

That looks like quite a project. We are thinking of taking a family trip to NYC this summer.

It is not a simple work. You have built New York City.

What a wonderful idea. The picture with all the individual pieces looks like the are falling.

Yogi: You're going to have fun! Make reservations early!

Rainfield61: You're right, we did build a whole city from the ground up.

Sue: Very perceptive. We have a glass dining room table so the pieces do look like they're falling.

Very impressive. I admire your stick-to-it-ness to finish it. I looks pretty daunting to me.
