Holiday Train Show
November 16 to January 12
You've never seen twigs, leaves, bark, and stems like these: for New York Botanical Garden's Holiday Train Show, natural botanical materials are used to make miniature versions of New York City landmarks, including Yankee Stadium, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Radio City Music Hall, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Rockefeller Center. Then, more than 20 model railroad and trolley tracks are thrown into the mix, chugging their way through the landscapes. Think the attraction is just for kids? Think again—the Garden's "Bar Car" nights are decidedly adult evenings, and participants are invited to take in the scenery along with a cocktail.
