The annual Holiday Train Show extravaganza at the New York Botanical Garden has returned, showcasing model trains traversing replicas of New York City landmarks, which are all created out of plant materials, like leaves, twigs, bark, berries, seeds, pine cones, nuts, and pods. You'll see magical models of the Brooklyn Bridge, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, Yankee Stadium, Penn Station, and more—including a TWA terminal that looks like it's been remade for a Hobbit village! New this year: The Artist’s Studio, which provides an insider’s look at how a structure destined for the Holiday Train Show is framed and begins taking shape through the addition of plant parts.
Get on board before January 16th, when the models will be packed up again. Entry costs $20 for adults, $18 for Students/Seniors, $10 for children 2 through 12, and children under 2, and members, are free.
