NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDENS -HOLIDAY TRAIN SHOW and time in LITTLE ITALY
Move over Manhattan! New York’s other big seasonal event goes on parade with the popular Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden. The New York Botanical Garden is an iconic living museum, a major educational institution, and a renowned plant research and conservation organization. Wrapped in the glow of twinkling lights, model trains and trolleys zip along over winding tracks past scaled replicas of New York Landmarks. Orange slices, cinnamon sticks, poppy pods, pine cones and a host of plant materials are used to create the more than 140 architectural reproductions. The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, The Brooklyn Bridge and Yankee Stadium are just a few examples. See the gingerbread houses and ongoing demonstrations. Stop at the café and gift shop. Spend time on Arthur Avenue, the “Little Italy” of the Bronx for lunch (on own) and a chance to purchase wonderful Italian goodies. https://www.facebook.com/events/400689550572190/
