“Gingerbread Lane,” a veritable village of holiday sweets, is back at the New York Hall of Science and bigger than last year.
Creator Jon Lovitch is hoping to secure the Guinness World Record for largest gingerbread village for the second consecutive year.
Seven hundred feet wide and clocking in at about 5,000 pounds of sweets, treats and icing, Gingerbread Lane is an entirely hand made construction. Lovitch’s design includes a police department, department store and train station.
Like Santa, Lovitch works year round to have everything ready by the holiday season.
Gingerbread Lane opened for view last week. Visitors who want to channel their inner Hansel or Gretel will be able to take some of the the giant gingerbread starting January 11, first come, first served.
