The Shops at Columbus Circle will be getting a very festive makeover come November 12, during Time Warner Center’s annual Holiday Under the Stars lighting ceremony. The special exhibit, featuring twelve 14-foot stars that hang from the ceiling of the Great Room, will certainly give you those warm and fuzzy feels—it’s almost guaranteed to bring cheer to the Scroogiest New Yorker.
But if massive stars doing a colorful dance to yuletide tunes doesn't really do it for you, perhaps an $8.5 million dollhouse will? For the first time ever, Columbus Circle will be home to the infamous Astolat Dollhouse Castle, featuring 29 rooms, 10,000 miniature pieces and, hell, there’s even a wine cellar. The house will be on display daily on the second floor of the Mezzanine through December 8, so make sure to add this must-see site to your list of things to do while it's Christmas in New York.
