The other days of our getaway involved a visit to the beautiful New York City Botanical Gardens, as well as a walk upon the Highline. We certainly lucked out with great weather over the week!
Our visit to the Botanical Gardens coincided with the Holiday Train Show. While the park itself was beautiful, and very much reminded me of our Toronto Islands, the exhibit was truly wonderful. Featuring model trains that meandered through the tropical conservatories and past dozens of miniature replicas of New York City's most known landmarks and architecture. The replicas were all exquisitely constructed of bark, twigs, and all sorts of natural materials.
I highly recommend a visit to the Highline on your next trip to the Big Apple. The Highline is a public park built upon an old freight train line that is elevated over the city. It's full of gardens, public art, various vendors, and hosts all types of different events through the the year.
What are your must see's while in the Big Apple?
