Celebrate the season inside the New York Botanical Garden's annual "Holiday Train Show", where G-scale model trains zip around you on a nearly half-mile journey around a miniature version of New York City, all under the twinkling glow of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Visionary artist Paul Busse and his team have created a world filled with tiny versions of such tourist attractions as the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and Rockefeller Center -- 175 replicas in all -- intricately crafted with bark, leaves and other natural materials. This year's exhibition showcases Lower Manhattan -- the birthplace of New York City -- featuring the State of Liberty, Ellis Island, and iconic skyscrapers sharing the spotlight among old and new favorites. Making their debut this year are One World Trade Center and the historic Battery Maritime Building along with two vintage ferry boats. Don't miss this unique melding of art, nature, science and imagination that "The New York Times" calls "one of New York City's best holiday gifts to itself."
