The annual Queens village is acknowledged as the largest gingerbread village in the world by the 2014 Guinness World Records. It’s the largest of the three NYC Gingerbread Lane villages — a 1.5 ton, 450-square-foot village made entirely of edible gingerbread, royal icing, and candy, with 1000 houses.
New this year is a transparent tunnel that lets visitors see what the construction looks like from underneath, and this year’s Gingerbread Lane also will apply for another Guinness World Record.
Smaller versions will be displayed at The Algonquin Hotel Times Square in Manhattan and at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge. All three will be on display through Jannuary 11, 2015, and Lovitch will give away all houses on January 11; he will also ship houses to children unable to visit due to illness or other personal situations.
Queens Hall of Science is in Flushing Meadow-Corona Park.
