The garden lights up with its collection of trains that chug along a nearly half-mile track by 150 miniature NYC landmarks like the Empire State Building and Radio City Music Hall, all made of natural materials such as leaves, twigs, bark and berries.

The Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Gardens is truly something you will never forget. Located in the spectacular conservatory, adorable model trains wiz their way around and through one hundred-fifty breathtaking New York landmarks which are all made from bark, leaves and various other natural materials. The craftsmanship and attention to detail on these masterpieces is astonishing. You will see familiar favorites like the Brooklyn Bridge, Yankee Stadium and the Statue of Liberty. Some new additions are the Queensboro Bridge and Coney Island. The Holiday Train Show is a treat for all ages and is sure to get you in the holiday spirit.

Visited this exhibit a few years ago and was quite interesting.  Situated in a green house, so be prepared for mild temps, each part of the exhibit has miniature models of plenty of NYC attractions made of only plants.  Yankee Stadium, The Plaza Hotel, and the Brooklyn Bridge are one of many landmarks made of nature.  There are trains running throughout the exhibits to replicate the constant motion of New York City.
