The New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx are an extraordinary place to visit any time of year. But during the holidays, a special train exhibit appeals to train buffs, New York-philes and amateur botanists alike.
See a 1/2–mile track of G-scale model trains puffing through a botanical city. More than 140 New York landmarks—from Yankee Stadium to Rockefeller Center to the Empire State Building—have been constructed entirely from natural materials: nuts, tree bark, fruits, pine cones and leaves.
New this year is a replica of Macy’s flagship location: "The Miracle on 34th Street” greets visitors as they enter the Haupt Conservatory.
Through Tuesday, January 1: 10 a.m.–7 p.m.
Admission: All-Garden Pass tickets for the Holiday Train Show start at $20 for Adults and $10 for Kids 2-12. See prices by date.
