Here is the first part of my photos from my annual NYC Christmas shop window viewing expedition. However, this post doesn't contain photos from shop windows, rather, from a exhibition of gingerbread houses and other creations at the Le Parker Meridien Hotel in Midtown West. The hotel asked several restaurants and artists to get creative with gingerbread - here are some of the results.
Of note were the scattered words in the display - "NY", "FUN", "USA", and of course, "OWS".
This display is of a gingerbread Le Parker Meridien hotel.
They did a good job of showing the division of space in the lobby between front desk area, and lobby bar/lounge. There was even a miniature Burger Joint.
Hotel rooms (which exist) and top floor spa/pool (which, AFAIK, don't).
I don't remember what this was supposed to be.
Chocolate pond and pretzel railings along the path.
Tick, tock, just a clock.
Supposed to be a haunted house, or something? In any case, I liked the detail.

Here's a display playing off of Occupy Wall Street.
99% Dark Chocolate - cute.
This was by far the best part of the exhibit, IMHO. Rudolph lives!
I liked the M&M roof shingles - red and green, of course.
Doublemint gum roof shingles!
