Holiday Train Show @ Botanical Gardens

The enchanting setting of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory showcases more than 140 scaled iconic buildings and structures under thousands of twinkling lights. Artistically crafted by Paul Busse's team at Applied Imagination, the landmarks are made of natural materials such as bark, twigs, stems, fruits, seeds, and pine cones and include the original Penn Station and Yankee Stadium, Radio City Music Hall, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, The New York Public Library on 42nd Street, and the Brooklyn Bridge.

    Thanks for arranging this, Tracy, and causing me to finally go. Next time we should all wear red carnations or something to find each other!

    I went to the NY Botanical Gardens website
    http://www.nybg.org/visit/direc...­ For me the best bet is the 2 train to Allerton Ave, and the B26 Bus to the Garden's Mosholu Gate entrance. If all works out, at 11AM I should be by that entrance. I have 11:30 AM tickets. That's the best I can do.

    Hi Tracy. I haven't purchased a ticket yet. Just want to make sure I've got this straight. We are purchasing individual tickets, not as a group right? And where are we meeting exactly? Thanks!

    This is really frustrating - let's see if this works: the phone number for the Botanical Gardens ticket office after 10 A.M. weekdays is area code seven-one-eight, eight-one-seven, eight-seven-one-six.

    Hopefully, that wasn't masked.

    For groups of 15 or more please contact Group Sales or call 718.817.8687. This is what it says on the website. This may help guarantee us getting in together otherwise it will be really crowded I think.

      Hi Justin. How does this work? I call the number you posted and tell them that I belong to the 5BoroExploration group? Is there any discount for groups? I can't access the ticketing site, it gives me an error. :(
