2020 Bronx Botanical Gardens Train Show During Covid
Dated: November 21 2020
The 29th annual train show at the breathtaking NY Botanical gardens is November 12ththrough January 31, 2021. It is not open to the public for the first time this year. Only members, Patrons, and corporate members can attend. Each membership can only visit one time, though they can purchase guest passes for that visit. Now would be a great time to renew or become a member. Safety is the number one priority here.
The show features remarkable G-scale model trains chugging along a half mile of track. They pass around, under, through and above over 150New York iconic landmarks created out bark, leaves, acorns, pinecones, and twigs. Every turn brings a new surprise as you are amazed at the recreations these talented people have built. Familiar structures like Grand central station and the Empire State Building are mesmerizing, but the unexpected things really blew me away. They have rebuilt the old TWA terminal with a runway and a jet made out of gourdes. The statue of Liberty made out of Palm leaves. The Brooklyn, George Washington, Manhattan, and other Bridges recreated with meticulous detail. They even have Hudson valley structures like Boscobel and Lyndhurst Castle. Hudson River light houses, Grant’s tomb, Gracie Mansion, Yankee stadium, The World’s fair grounds…I could go on and on.
Please make it your business to visit this wonderful exhibit. Afterwards enjoy a delicious Italian meal in the NY’s only authentic “Little Italy” found on Arthur Avenue a few blocks away.
