The New York Botanical Garden’s Holiday Train Show will showcase Lower Manhattan—the birthplace of New York City—in the 27th year of this beloved tradition. Enchanting model trains will zip through a display of more than 175 New York landmarks, each re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials—all under the twinkling glow of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. The Holiday Train Show opens to the public on Saturday, November 17, 2018, and runs through Monday, January 21, 2019. Replicas debuting this year include the historic Battery Maritime Building, vintage ferry boats, the Battery Park Control House, the Woolworth Building, One World Trade Center, the Oculus, and the Terminal Warehouse. The new Lower Manhattan replicas will share the spotlight with old favorites including the Statue of Liberty and the Ellis Island Immigration Station.
