A tour of New York City’s iconic landmarks as you’ve never seen them: the delightful Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanic Garden. All of the historic buildings and surroundings are constructed from natural materials including wood, leaves, lichens, and bark. Long demolished buildings like the old Penn Station were reconstructed from archival photographs, and trains of all kinds wind in and out of the model cityscape.
