The ING New York City Marathon

Start of New York City Marathon
Start of New York City Marathon

Sunday, November 2, 2014

Make sure to map your route carefully on this day, as many streets will be blocked and closed. Especially the Upper East Side (Met and Frick) and the finish line in Central Park. The NYC Marathon is 26 miles and 385 yards of the world’s most diverse marathon course.

Spectators – First Avenue covers miles 16-19 of the race. The biggest crowds on the course line the streets on First Avenue, giving the runners a boost as they head toward the Bronx. If you want to leave First Avenue afterward, make sure to stand on the West side, as you will not be able to cross 1st Ave again until after the race.

New York Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show

New York Botanical Garden Holiday Train ShowNovember 15, 2014– January 19, 2015

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 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.

Photo: Statue of Liberty made from Palm Leaves and Grass

Tickets: Adults $20, Seniors/Students $18, Children 2-12 $10. Half Price Holiday Train Show Tickets may be available.

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.
