Posted in Holiday Train Show on January 2 2019, by Plant Talk

Join Laura Busse Dolan, owner of Applied Imagination, for a quick tour of the New York landmark replicas created by her company of artists that most speak to her, from the familiar silhouette of St. Patrick’s Cathedral to the Electric Tower of Luna Park. They’re all here on view at NYBG through January 21 as the Holiday Train Show continues into the new year—don’t miss it!

These cascading fish fountains on Luna Park’s Electric Tower are so charming; notice the badam pods and scales made from pine cones! Part of our collection celebrating Luna Park, Coney Island, which was tragically destroyed by a fire in 1944.
