Have YOU experienced the SEEDS of CREATIVITY?
At the heart of the NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDEN rests a holiday experience you DON’T want to MISS! Stretched across 250 acres, YOUR FAMILY can take special tours, see musical performances, and participate in family activities; but the MAIN ATTRACTION lives at the ENID HAUPT CONSERVATORY.
The New York Botanical Garden’s 24th Annual HOLIDAY TRAIN SHOW is New York City’s favorite family tradition! With over half a mile of MODEL TRAINS rushing through the miniature streets, see the gardens come to life with over 150 recreated landmarks created from 100% ORGANIC, ORNATE MATERIALS!
NOTICE every DETAIL in the miniature ST. PETER’S CATHEDRAL formed from bark to seed pods and bamboo to eucalyptus leaves, and more! Other great landmarks included are the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge and Rockefeller
Who are the minds BEHIND these beautiful miniatures?
WORLD FAMOUS landscape architect PAUL BUSSE and his team are the minds and talent behind these magical miniature plant cities! Paul’s journey began with a LOVE of trains and gardens. PASSIONATE about creating OUTDOOR LIVING SPACES, PAUL’S VISION for the train show was to make it WHIMSICAL and MAGICAL.
“I had no idea [it would become so big]… But that was always my bottom line, a company that builds happiness. We’re really selling lots of smiles.” – Paul Bussee
