Not too long ago, I posted about Christoph Niemann's illustrated blog post on coffee. His latest installment is called I LEGO NY, which will resonate not just with New Yorkers. It's like a manual of how to survive New York City and I'm sure the rest of us slobs, of the non-New York variety, may get a chuckle out of it too.

I picked out one of my favourites to accompany this post. The choice may not be too smart, because it's a reminder of all the cabs I've tried to hail unsuccesfully (I'm an oblivious hailer, as soon as I see a taxi sign or a blue license plate, my instinct is to throw my arm up in the air, whether it's busy or not).

Of course all rights belong to the New York Times and Christoph Niemann.

I learn something new everyday...I have hailed a cab like 3 times in my life..I must have been lucky cuz I hailed a cab that wasnt busy.

I'm just like you. I see a cab, I start waving. Eventually, one will stop.

Thanks for sharing this. I sent it immediately to a friend who still has a huge Lego collection from his childhood, including pieces collected in Denmark.

I thought the Lego series was okay, but I LOVED the coffee one. Those drawings were all so cute... I'd love copies. I missed that first time you posted. Thanks again.
