Fifth Avenue at 59th St. This 32-foot menorah requires a crane to light its eight oil lamps, which makes for a monumental Hanukkah spectacle. Throughout the holiday, catch a nightly menorah lighting beginning at 5:30pm, with the exception of Friday's, which will be at 3:30pm and Saturday's, which is at 8:00pm in accordance with Jewish tradition. Follow up the gathering with a visit to the Jewish Museum, a stroll through the Columbus Circle holiday market or a carriage ride around Central Park—hey, it's the holidays! All ages.
