New York Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show

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, Yankee Stadium and more than 150 other landmarks 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. In 2015, 3,000 feet of additional space were added to the exhibition, making room for more trains and a multisensory light and sound show.
