Christmas 2022 Memory

Bronx Botanical Holiday Train Show

      If there was ever a time when trains come to mind it is Christmas, when at our house the big trains from Germany roll around the tree all day for about a month.
      Last year as the result of an invasion of raccoons up in our attic, all the decorations including the Holiday Train Track and many other items carefully stored away went missing.
      By the time we solved the missing caper, and had packed the critters off to another location, we had also made a fabulous discovery.
      The Bronx Botanical Garden Holiday Train Show is tops to spend a December afternoon in a place full of families, the wonder of model trains set off against 190 reproductions of famous New York City landmarks made out of living botanicals that is just wonderful.
      Air Cargo people, put on your bucket list next time you are in New York City at Christmas (2023?), a visit to the fabulous Bronx Botanical Garden, where a company named Applied Imagination presented inspiring botanical models and sculptures, paired with universally beloved G scale model trains that transported thousands through an immersive celebration of the natural world.
      This year included trains over, under, around and through a lively exciting place filled with botanical creations of all the New York City bridges and the aforementioned 190 New York City Landmarks. Also featured was the Eero Saarinen-designed landmark TWA JFK Terminal, now a hotel at the airport, created at Applied’s workshop alongside a Statue of Liberty and a stunning New York City tenement block (pictured) and the Central Park fountains.
