Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden

Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden

A trip to the Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical is an annual tradition for many families in New York. It will be, now, for us, too. The show is an incredible work of art — a display of creativity, architecture, engineering.

And if you go early, you will beat the crowds and enjoy it with plenty of elbow room.
