From the Manufacturer

This puzzle recreates Manhattan’s famous skyline not only in three dimensions using scale-model buildings, but also along the axis of fourth dimension time, spanning 101 years of its architectural history. The puzzle includes over 100 plastic buildings that depict the city as it appeared as far back as 1812 through to 1971 with the addition of the World Trade Towers, and into the future in 2013 with the completion of the Freedom Tower. Including icons such as the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, and the United Nations, the buildings fit into pre-cut holes in a traditional 2D jigsaw puzzle composed of 575 pieces that form the city’s street layout and islands. Includes a Time Poster that includes a history of the city. The online educational feature includes more than 2000 facts. Ages 14 and up. Assembled 28" x 12" x 4".

I am certainly not into puzzles but this one takes the prize as the most fun and geographically interesting puzzle i've ever seen and put together; It does take a lot of effort to string together all pieces of the puzzle, specifically the bottom first layer and the final 120 buildings layer, but i imagine that's what puzzles are for. I became so engrossed with it towards the end of assembling the bottom layer that i ended up having a "puzzling" marathon session that lasted for 8 1/2 hours of non-stop, head-breaking matching pieces and final assemblage, almost an act of obsession !
The detail of the pieces, particularly on the tiny buildings, was rather surprising and amazing, considering their size and the price of the item.
One recommendation that i found very useful and not mentioned in the manual is to get a base (wood, plastic, etc) large enough to serve as the assembly base, as there are so many small pieces in this puzzle, so many buildings and assorted detailing, that you might as well have a base to display the end result permanently, or at least until the puzzle is fully put together and ready to be transferred to a more permanent location.
A few minor disappointments were the fact that the Metropolitan Museum building is not included in the puzzle (arguably the biggest tourist attraction in New York City and major historic building), the detailing on the bridges, compared to the detailing on all the 120 buildings, is non-exhisting, and the same can be said about the World Trade Center Twin Towers, which the manufacturer decided to include with the puzzle as well as having their own places on the final assembled puzzle, even though they don't exist any longer.
Overall, a highly recommended item; Just be prepared to become unwittingly obsessed with finalizing the puzzle and have some water or other liquid handily available, or like myself you might end up dehidrated in blissfull obsessiveness !

Although this puzzle has some design/manufacture weaknesses, I must say I really enjoyed it. It has 2 layers--the bottom layer shows major streets in Manhattan, with buildings outlined in their locations. The second layer is an overlay with cut-outs for the plastic buildings that are included. The problem is that the puzzle is printed on a foam backing, which makes each piece rather maleable and because most are cut in the same basic shape, most pieces will fit with any other piece. You have to be very conscious of the color shades and fine details of the picture in order to get it right. When I got the edges finished, I found that I had one side 28" long and the opposite side was 24" long. I don't think this is a puzzle for children or people with poor vision. The 126 plastic buildings/bridges each has a very tiny number on the bottom. You have to use a magnifying glass (one is included) to see the numbers, which correspond to the name of the building on a chart. Three or four of the buildings didn't have a number, but that was no problem--at the end you could see where each one fit. I wrote the number on each piece with a fine Sharpie, and then we sorted them by the date they were built (according to a chart that's included). We started placing the buildings chronologically, so that we could see the city grow. I wanted to improve my knowledge of NYC, and this puzzle was helpful. And it was really fun to do. This is a very creative and enjoyable puzzle that will help you learn about a great city.

A beautifully made puzzle of New York City. All the pieces are well made and I really like the fact that the WTC twin towers are included so you can choose to display with the former twin towers or with the new WTC towers, or maybe even both! Its just cool that you can display the skyline with the new WTC complex which won't even be ready in real life by 2015. With this puzzle, you can get a sneak peek at how the skyline will look with the new WTC towers. Very nice touch and the puzzle won't be outdated for a long time.

The first layer of the puzzle is really tricky, challenging at the same time. The second layer which are foam filled puzzle pieces are much easier to assemble since some of the foam parts comes pre-assembled. The final layer are of course the buildings and its pretty straightforward from then onwards. It took me about 2 days to complete the entire puzzle and the end result was well worth it! They have other 4D puzzles, but I think this one of New York is one of their best!

We just finished the New York Puzzle - we stayed up until well past midnight the other nighe working on it.

My mother and I had a blast with it - she's never been to NYC and we never buy puzzles! We are going to take it apart and give it to my aunt and cousins to put together.

I bought a second puzzle of NYC as a Christmas gift for a friend and am going to order a puzzle of Chicago for myself.

What a great product ! ! ! If you like a bit of a challenge or like NYC, you won't be disappointed.

The glow-in-the-dark feature makes makes it possible to view the city as it might be at night with traffic on the streets. Maybe they should make parts of the buildings luminescent so it will look like they are lit up at night, also?

I hope they will make puzzles of San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. Maybe Houston, and Dallas, also - or a larger map of NYC that includes parts of the boroughs?

Positives: Lots of pieces, challenging enough for an adult, and different from other puzzles. Also, the finished product looks really neat - you may not want to take it apart.

Opportunities: Some of the puzzle pieces are not uniquely die cut so you have to experiment a bit to ensure you have the right piece in some cases - but this just adds to the challenge in a positive way.
