2. Visit a Giant Menorah

World's largest menorah in Manhattan lights up for the holidays in NYC

Giant menorahs are a common sight in the parks and plazas of New York City. You’ll find the largest menorah, clocking in at 36 feet tall, right outside the Plaza Hotel. The second largest is in Brookyn’s Grand Army Plaza.

This year at the South Street Seaport, artist and Chasidic Rabbi, Yitzchok Moully, has created an extra special menorah that will become part of the historic district’s annual celebrations. The Seaport Menorhah design was inspired by the area’s nautical history and is meant to look like the sails of a ship. Check out the biggest menorahs in the city here!
