Giant Menorah Count: 7

I'm in snowy Minnesota now. On the drive through Brooklyn and Queens to JFK, we counted seven giant menorahs:

One yellow welded steel menorah nearly two stories tall in the center of the roundabout at the south end of Prospect Park, two roof rack menorahs on minivans, and four big (8-10 feet tall) menorahs in yards.

Rumor has it, the biggest menorah in Brooklyn is the one in Grand Army Plaza -- it's about 30 feet tall. The world's largest menorah, I'm sad to say, is in Manhattan, in Central Park. It's 32 feet (not much taller than Brooklyn's!) and two tons of steel.

I'll be on the lookout for over-sized diplays of Hannukah cheer here in the Twin Cities, too.
