‘Tis the season for model trains to zip and zoom through a miniature New York City, structured entirely out of plant bits, such as twigs, bark and leaves. While snow-capped houses and plain-Jane locomotives are certainly lovely, they don’t hold a candle to the amazingly intricate miniature plant-based replicas of New York City buildings in the Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden. The annual show, now in its 20th year, features a mini New York City, complete with the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty, created from millions of plant parts. From the Brooklyn Bridge to the Garden’s own conservatory, the structures transform tiny bits of nature, from bark and twigs to berries and moss, into your favorite Big Apple landmarks.
