Books from Brick City Depot

Lego neighborhood book
Our first book is now available for preorder on, on, and on Barnes & Noble. The LEGO Neighborhood Book is your guide to creating incredible LEGO buildings. Snap together a few apartments, shops, houses, and soon you'll have a whole neighborhood! Inside these pages, you'll learn techniques for recreating classic architectural styles in LEGO bricks, like San Francisco's famous Victorians and New York City's brownstones. LEGO model-building experts Brian and Jason Lyles will teach you how to create interesting architectural features like cornices and false fronts, and how to construct porches and detailed interiors. With full color instructions for three multistory houses and many smaller builds (like a reclining armchair and an old-timey lamppost), The LEGO Neighborhood Book will give you hours of building fun. What will your neighborhood look like?
