For the second year in a row the Le Parker Meridien Hotel, located at 119 West 56th Street in Manhattan, is hosting a free Gingerbread Extravaganza showcase in their lobby atrium. On display from December 1, 2010 until January 9th, 2011, the creations were all created by local bakeries, a food truck and restaurants. The theme chosen this year was "Movies Made in New York." I blogged about last year's wonderfully creative exhibit, which you can see at this link, and I knew I had to see this year's efforts.
Notice the dinosaurs on the top floor of the museum!
The iconic Kong holding a gingerbread Fay Wray in his arms on top of the Empire State Building!
I loved the marshmallow man!
It has Tony and Maria dancing on the roof!
Do you remember "Zoltar," the fortune teller machine in the movie?
Such a cute Stuart Little!
It contained lots of wonderful NYC scenes!
For only $1 visitors can vote on their favorite gingerbread creation, with the proceeds donated to City Harvest, the food rescue organization dedicated to feeding the city's hungry men, women and children. In addition to spreading holiday cheer, if you buy a ticket to vote, your generosity is rewarded with a chance to win a 5 night stay at the luxurious Parker Palm Springs to be determined by a random drawing!
Which NYC movie location gingerbread
creation would you vote for?
As New Year's Eve approaches I'd like to thank all of my blog readers and followers for your friendship and support! I can't believe I will be entering my fourth year of blogging! It has been very fulfilling to me to be able to take you along on my jaunts around the boroughs of New York City and the other places I've traveled in the past few years. Blogging has enriched my life very much, both through the research I do for my blog and by reading all of your wonderful blogs. I look forward to a new year and I wish you all a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2011!
