If you’re still looking for festive holiday activities to do in the new year, the New York Botanical Garden’s Holiday Train Show© continues through Monday, January 15, in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Watch G-scale model trains chug on two miles of track, passing 150 famous New York landmarks.
New highlights this year are replicas of the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, General Electric Building, and St. Bartholomew’s Church. All landmarks are created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials by show creator Paul Busse from Alexandria, Kentucky, where he and his wife, Margaret, own and operate their design firm, Applied Imagination.
