What is Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden?
Holiday Train Show it is one of the most amazing exhibits I have ever seen in New York City. It is very bright, fun an enjoyable experience for people of any age.
Every year, for the past 28 years New Yorkers have been enjoying the new time honored tradition of bringing their families to see the holiday train show.
During winter holiday season, the New York Botanical Garden hosts Holiday Train Show. At this show, you can see adorable miniatures of trains, bridges, buildings in NYC.
The show feature very cute model trains, that zip through a display of more than 175 New York landmarks. Furthermore, each of the miniature of historical buildings and bridges are made of dry leaves, bark, and other natural botanical material. This year iconic landscapes of legendary Central Park are on spotlight. You will see a miniature of the Belvedere Castle and other architectural treasures.
At this event children and adults of all ages are mesmerized and awed by the amazing botanical designs that have miniaturized New York City’s most sensational landmarks. This, in my opinion, is one of New York City’s best kept holiday secrets.
It is indeed, an amazing spectacular show! Imagine a little cute locomotive rolling through mini Brooklyn Bridge, Rockefeller Center, Statue of Liberty and other iconic places in New York?!
This year, the show will also have miniatures of the World Trade Center and historic Battery Maritime Building with two vintage ferry-boats.
In addition to the model trains, boats and landmark exhibits, the Holiday Train Show offers entertaining program, arts and craft for kids, Bar Car Nights for parents, concerts and performances for adults and kids.
