NYCLUG’s in the New York Daily News!

There are AFOLs among us, not the least of whom is Sean Kenney, one of the few artists in the world whose medium is the LEGO brick.  This Sunday’s Daily News has a profile of Sean, in which NYCLUG gets a nice hat tip.   (more…)

Welcome (back) to NYCLUG!

First founded in the mid-aughts, NYCLUG — the New York City LEGO Users’ Group — brought together like-minded Adult Fans of LEGO, or AFOLs, who lived and worked in the five boroughs of New York City.  We held two or three meetings before disbanding, simply because it was difficult to get our schedules coordinated.
NYCLUG was short-lived.
But as we’ve entered an era dominated by social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, along with other online resources such as blogging and even Google Hangouts, NYCLUG is now able to adapt itself to be less burdensome on its members, while still allowing us as a LUG to flourish and bring notice to the great works done by its members.
And so, NYCLUG is formally reborn!
NYCLUG comprises members who either LIVE or WORK in any of New York City’s five boroughs (Staten Island, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx), or who are “legacy” members — that is, original members of NYCLUG from when it was first established years ago.
We have received formal recognition as a LUG by The LEGO Group and, to date, comprise ten members from in and around New York City.  As stated, NYCLUG will primarily live online, but we will hold a handful of in-person meetings during calendar 2014 and beyond.  We will be codifying membership rules and will issue them in early 2014.  
If you are age 17 or older and want to inquire about joining NYCLUG, please send an email to NYCLUG (at) Gmail.   You can also find us on Facebook or Twitter.
Leg godt and happy new year!
