New York Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show

New York Botanical Garden
2900 Southern Blvd.
Bronx, NY 10458


Model trains navigate painstakingly crafted miniatures of New York City’s built environment, all made entirely out of plant parts. The Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge and Yankee Stadium are among the 150 landmarks that form a fantastically rendered city landscape built from seeds, bark, leaves and twigs, serviced by a robust half-mile of track, all nestled underneath the glass ceilings of the historic Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Other events coinciding with the train show include a cappella performances, special tours, classical music concerts, a poetry reading and activities for kids.
