It's a lovely stroll to Le Parker Meridien. Norma's brunch and Ten Over Ten mani seems to be the best of it's kind here in the city located there at the hotel. But for the holiday, they have a beautiful origami Christmas tree up in their lobby as well as a gingerbread contest to view. There were about 10 gingerbread displays completed by local bakeries and restaurants here in the city, all fascinating and creative work to see.
The theme was "Landmarks Around The World."
I failed to know what bakery did what. Bummer. Great Sphink above by Rolling Pin Productions.
"Hurricrane Sandy" & "Candicrane" below was my favorite of One57 and I would agree it is soon a landmark of the world.
