Back for its 28th year, the New York Holiday Train Show has recreated the Big Apple in miniature. Watch old-fashioned model trains run past 175 New York landmarks carved from natural materials like acorns, birch bark and cinnamon sticks.
With nearly half a mile of track set up for the event, you can enjoy antique trams and trolleys cruising through an idyllic winter wonderland. Catch express trains crossing hand-sculpted bridges while fairy lights twinkle overhead, admire the attention to detail which took hundreds of hours of work, and watch over the city along with models of Lady Liberty and the Rockefeller Center.
New York may be a city of skyscrapers - but they're not all that grows in Gotham! The New York Botanical Garden is a stunning living museum that takes you straight to the great, green outdoors. Stroll, sniff and enjoy the 250 acres at your leisure!
Breathe in, breathe out. The rush of New York can wait for a while! This blooming marvelous National Historic Landmark is one of the best botanical gardens in the world. It's also the biggest one in any city in the United States.
Smell the roses, the multi-colored azalea blossoms, more than 200 flowering cherry trees, and the sweet-scented magnolia blooms. Explore the rock garden, built in the 1930s, and stroll to the meditative soundtrack of a cascading waterfall.
It's not just a pretty garden. The New York Botanical Garden is also a renowned plant research and conservation organization. Take advantage of the knowledge in the form of exhibitions and programming as you walk among the flora.
