Even the smallest kids will feel like giants in this astounding world of miniatures. The Times Square attraction is in a league all its own with 50,000 square feet containing approximately 300 models, 1,000 trains with 12,000 wagons, over 10,000 cars and 50 airplanes. Replicas of well-known locales around the world—along with some fantastical ones found in our favorite books—cover this massive installation and with little vehicles coming and going every which way, it’s a place a child could get lost in for hours. If the family wants to be a deeper part of the action, a 3-D scanner will turn you all into model citizens for a fee. All ages.
