Gulliver's Gate President and CEO Eiran Gazit has a similar attraction — a miniature Israel — outside Jerusalem. The New York project, open daily at 216 W. 44th St., includes 50 nations and counting. Regular admission costs a not-so-little $36 for adults, $27 for children and seniors. www.gulliversgate.com.
Roughly 100,000 “people” populate this dwarfed-down universe, named for Jonathan Swift’s 18th century satire “Gulliver’s Travels,” where the title character gets shipwrecked on an island full of little Lilliputians.
At Gulliver’s Gate, the denizens are built on a 1:87 scale, meaning a 6-foot-tall person measures just shy of an inch.
You, too, can become a model citizen: Step inside a scanner to create a 3-D model of yourself for $44. When your figurine is finished a few weeks later, it will be added to the display.
