A Love of Legos April 20, 2024

Matthew, an attendee of IAHD’s Tarrytown day program and a resident of our Yorktown home, spends the majority of his time and money on his favorite hobby: building Legos. Most of what he builds is not from an official Lego set; instead, Matthew collects loose Lego pieces and follows online guidebooks to build independently.

For his birthday this past February, he decided to host a celebratory exhibition here at IAHD Tarrytown to show off his vast collection of colorful figurines and buildings.

These are just some of Matthew’s creations; he has boxes more of them in his bedroom closet.

His favorite Lego piece and the most difficult one to build are one and the same- a ship from the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series. You can see some of the ship’s intricate details in the last gallery photo above.

Thank you to all who visited Matthew’s Lego Exhibition, especially our IAHD staff and those from the local community! We hope you had a wonderful time celebrating Matthew as he passionately shared this quite impressive hobby with us.
