The Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) is one of the city's most beloved traditions and this year visitors can expect to see even more model trains than in the previous years.
The astonishing display at the Holiday Train Show features over 150 replicas of New York City landmarks created using only plants and the adorned model trains which travel along a quarter-mile of track. The skillfully crafted landmarks, designed by Paul Busse, include the original Yankee Stadium, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Trans World Airline Flight Center at John F. Kennedy Airport.
NYBG is a winter wonderland during the holidays and on November 15th, visitors can join in an old-fashioned sing-along with the Westchester Chordsmen during the Holiday Tree Lighting event. In addition to the Annual Holiday Train Show and Holiday Tree Lighting, there are several other festive events scheduled throughout the season such as Holiday A Cappella, Bar Car Nights and the Winter Harmonies Concert Series.
