Like traffic cops, air marshals being forced to meet monthly quota

To beat the heat last weekend we headed out to Washington Square to see a "master lego builder" build an eight foot tall alligator. I wasn't sure exactly how that would work. Were they just going to have some guy behind ropes working on a massive alligator for three days? How exciting would that be to see? Or more importantly how exciting would that be to do!

When we got there we could see lots of tables surrounding the center (half built) alligator. They had a scale model of the alligator to view, and the tables had lots of legos scattered on them. They had the crowd building larger "bricks" that would then be used in the bigger alligator. This way the crowd got involved and it took pressure off the "master builder" as the center of attention. It was neat to see, and it got a lot of people involved.
