Seen & Heard: Gingerbread City coming to Seaport

LONDON’S GINGERBREAD CITY COMING TO FULTON
The Gingerbread City, an installation of a miniature real-life city made of gingerbread, is coming to the Seaport at 25 Fulton starting Nov. 18 and running through Jan. 7. Tickets are $25 for above 12 years old and $18 for below 12s. Nothing can beat the New York Botanical Garden’s train show, but this sounds a bit reminiscent of that — and it was created by the founder of London’s Museum of Architecture — the installation is in its seventh year there. They will also host gingerbread house workshops. More info and tickets here.

HEAVY METAL AT GALERIE56
