New York Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show

New York Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show
Statue of Liberty made from Palm Leaves and Grass

November 19, 2016–January 16, 2017

This is a dazzling and detailed replica of Manhattan, made entirely from natural plants, and 14 electric trains running in loops around the city. The exhibit is great for both kids and adults, and makes an especially beautiful date night with cocktails on "Bar Car Nights" in Decmeber. Check out how huge the exhibit really is in person. Located in the Bronx, accessible by Subway and Metro North.

Tickets: Adults $20, Seniors/Students $18, Children 2-12 $10.

Just like NYC, twinkling lights go on at night with both city and holiday lights. Over 150 NYC landmarks are created entirely from botanical “ingredients” such as, orange slices, cinnamon sticks, poppy pods, pine cones, berries, mushrooms, nuts, bark, leaves twigs and dozens of other plant parts. Humming along between familiar sites such as the Statue of Liberty and Rockefeller Center, large-scale model trains cover a quarter-mile of track to bring life to this traditional holiday landscape. The Holiday Train Show is definitely one of those “not-to-be-missed” and “only in NYC” unique and memory-creating things to do for couples, families and children.
