You may not have noticed, but a massive new village is being developed in Queens. And now, the new development is open to the public.

Oh, and did we mention that it is edible? That’s right, were talking about gingerbread and lots of it.

Gingerbread Lane at the New York Hall of Science in Queens is a massive maze of miniature homes made entirely from edible gingerbread, royal icing and candy. Every year, chef Jon Lovitch spends every day leading up to the holidays creating the whimsical village, which he designs, bakes and plans himself. Does that make him NYC’s biggest builder?

It has won the Guinness World Record for the largest gingerbread village in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and will by vying for the title again this year, according to Time Out.

But if Queens isn’t your scene, there is also Gingerbread Boulevard is set to run through Madison Square Park, which boasts life-size gingerbread houses. Wonder what they rent for? [TO] Christopher Cameron
