New York Botanical Garden's Holiday Train Show - Model Trains and Botanical Architecture

One of New York's popular family holiday traditions is the New York Botanical Garden's Holiday Train Show. It features model trains running along a half-mile of track in and around New York landmark buildings and bridges constructed entirely of plant materials including nuts, tree bark, fruits, pine cones, and leaves. The display is being held at the historic, Victorian-era Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. The botanical architecture includes replicas of St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the original Yankee Stadium, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn Bridge, among others. The Holiday Train Show runs through January 12, 2014.

Wow! My son would have loved this! Then I'd have had to peel him off the displays!
