Who do you think lives in Ginger Bread Lane?
Down by the station and up on the hills
Old Mother Goose? Little Boy Bill?
The bookstore is run by Dana and Ben,
They could be elves or really small men
Those people at the shop that sells authentic Yule logs
They speak French, but I’m sure they are frogs!
Chef Steve they say, is the sweetest imp
You’ll know him when you see him, he walks with a limp
I once heard the witch at the ribbon shop say
She can roll pierogies better than Faye
Those Construction Co. goblins are never upto any good
They never do a job as well as they should
Mrs.Penguin who runs the skating rink
Loves to dress up in satins and pink
The Bear at the carousel is a carefree chap
With a flower in his buttonhole and a feather in his cap
Hotel Plum Pudding is the nicest place to stay
When you visit Ginger Bread Lane this holiday!!
Sugar plum roofs, Peppermint panes
Doors with knockers made of candy cane
It’s a special stop on the Holiday Train
Let’s go, let’s go to Gingerbread Lane!!
I made the long trip to Queens to see the Gingerbread Lane exhibit at the New York Hall of Science. Housed along a circular corridor on the upper level of the building, this exhibit is a treat. Gingerbread Lane is complete with lovely homes, an ice rink, a carousel, a police station, a railway station, a fire station and a whole lot of delightful shops. The inhabitants of this quaint lane-town must be tech savvy e-communicators, because I didn’t see an old fashioned post office there.
The exhibit is on display till 1:00 pm on January 11, 2015 and then these houses will be given away on a first come first serve basis ( 1 house per person).
