How do you get to Radio City Music Hall?
Well you can practice, practice, practice. Or you can hop the Metro North to the Botanical Garden station in the Bronx for the Holiday Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden. There you will find more than 100 replicas of iconic New York buildings and landmarks—the Brooklyn Bridge, Yankee Stadium, the Empire State Building, Radio City Music Hall—all made entirely from plants parts such as twigs, leaves, seeds, bark, and leaves. While vintage model trains run through the displays in the magnificent Enid A. Haupt Conservatory.
i’ve been there before and count it as one of the must-see New York holiday attractions. This was the first time for Lauren and she could not get over it. “I feel like a kid!” she kept gushing. We say a lot of people there on the Thursday afternoon we attended, but didn’t see one without a smile.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children. you can purchase them online here.

Looming over the landscape like an otherworldly spaceship, this dome, designed by Fuller also stops traffic in the midst of this lush garden populated by works of art by Yoko Ono, Chihuly, Roy Lichtenstein, and many more. Fuller’s plan was to fit the dome out as a residence and have someone live their for a year and document the experience, by local zoning lawns blocked the project.
