LEGO’s latest addition to their Architecture series is the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The MBS only opened up back in 2010, but it has quickly become a landmark of Singapore due to its unique and modern design. Other notable architectural structures that have been replicated in LEGO form include the Sydney Opera House, Big Ben, and the White House. The Marina Bay Sands LEGO set will be available at the hotel’s gift shop as well as select retailers in Asia. But if you look around on the internet long enough I’m sure you can find a set for sale.
Frank Sinatra’s New York City Penthouse just recently hit the market. Apparently Frank designed this place himself back in 1961. The place was refurbished back in 2008 and modern additions like the glass staircase, gourmet kitchen, and marble fireplace were added, but other than that it is pretty much the same apartment that Frank called home. It has four bedrooms, six bathrooms, two large terraces, and amazing views of the East River. This is the definition of a bachelor pad. No chick could turn down the opportunity to spend the night at Frank Sinatra’s former place of residence.
