Most villages suck. Not only do they lack a tube station, they're full of villagers. And very few, if any, have pop-up rooftop cocktail clubs. But in New York there's a village made of biscuits. GingerBread Lane, a 500-square-foot baked 'burb, has just gone on show at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. Made from masses of cookies, heaps of icing and loads of confectionery, it could be crowned the largest gingerbread village in the world (last year's weighed 1.5 tons).

This edible wonderland has more than a thousand individual structures and houses, plus a double-decker bus and a carousel - even a department store. It will stand on proud display until January, when it'll be dismantled and handed out to hungry spectators. Sweet!

We also want a giant park-circling ice rink like Chicago
