New York City’s Favorite Holiday Tradition is Back!
Model trains zip through an enchanting display of more than 175 New York landmarks, each delightfully re-created from natural materials such as birch bark, lotus pods, acorns, and cinnamon sticks. Marvel at G-scale locomotives humming past replicas of familiar sights such as the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and Rockefeller Center on nearly a half-mile of track. This year’s exhibition showcases Central Park, with new replicas of its iconic architectural features, including Belvedere Castle, the Dairy, and more—all presented in a uniquely immersive special exhibition space adjacent to the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.
