All aboard! One of New York City’s favorite holiday traditions is back and chugging through the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory in the Bronx Botanical GardensUnder the twinkle of colored lights, young and old will delight in following enchanting model trains as they wind through a display of nearly 200 Big Apple landmarks, each re-created with natural materials, including leaves and bark, berries and branches. Let your imagination go off the rails as you watch the treasured locomotives hum past familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge and Rockefeller Center on nearly a half-mile of track. This year’s exhibition showcases the stars of Lower Manhattan featuring the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and iconic skyscrapers. This year for the first time, One World Trade Center and the historic Battery Maritime Building along with two vintage ferry boats will make their debut. Buy tickets online to ensure your garden entrance. The train runs through the end of the month.
