Gingerbread Lane is back for the fifth year at the New York Hall of Science in Queens.  

This year's Village has more than 13 hundred homes, along with a fire department and a hot chocolate distillery.

Creator Jon Lovitch says he bakes about two thousand gingerbread loaves himself to put the display together.

"The local schools have now taken this and they do lessons regarding urban planning and the chemistry that goes into baking and the science of how weather affects sugar and dry goods," said Lovitch.

He's waiting to hear back from Guinness to see if he has broken his own world record this year for Largest Entirely Edible Gingerbread Village.
