This year the New York Botanical Garden celebrates its 19th Annual Holiday Train Show. A true holiday tradition, this train show is beyond amazing. It features an extensive collection of model trains and over 140 scaled replicas of New York landmarks. The entire display is crafted by designer Paul Busse and is exclusively constructed from natural materials such as nuts, tree bark, fruits, pine cones, and leaves,. It’s absolutely breathtaking and a perfect event for families.
From New York brownstones to the original Yankee Stadium to the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, care has been taken in creating these NYC landmarks. A new addition this year i the JFK International Airport, complete with runway, terminal and miniature airplanes.
